The Republic of Eppur is a huge, safe nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 383 million Eppurians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Istanbul. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Eppurian economy, worth 45.5 trillion Dinars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 118,876 Dinars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 386,060 per year while the poor average 27,599, a ratio of 14.0 to 1.

One-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Eppurian Space Agency, the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, and employers may fire workers without giving any reason. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Eppur's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Eppur is ranked 139,493rd in the world and 1,491st in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 270.15 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
