The Effing of Efferalt is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Effer Alt with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.822 billion Efferaltians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Effertily. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Efferaltian economy, worth 141 trillion Effers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is 77,605 Effers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, worried-looking neonatal nurses are being deployed in place of SWAT teams during dangerous drug busts, lobster tastes best when it is red, and aeroplane cockpits no longer have altimeters or airspeed indicators. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Efferalt's national animal is the Emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Unknown.

Efferalt is ranked 191,948th in the world and 7,224th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring zero on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
