The United Nations of Eppur is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Ismail Enes Kamburoglu with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, unlimited-speed roads, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.04 billion Eppurians 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 relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Istanbul. The average income tax rate is 23.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Eppurian economy, worth 321 trillion Lire a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 157,568 Lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

The countryside is shrouded by wind farms, 90% of active duty EAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, large-girthed charity workers assign themselves healthy wages for their work with starving children, and Ismail Enes Kamburoglu's used car is held together by bumper stickers that support the opposition. Crime is totally unknown. Eppur's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Eppur is ranked 186,058th in the world and 819th in 10000 Islands for Best Weather, with 95 Meters Of Sunlight.
