LeaderPresident Raf Mormors


The Union of Springbok of Eraver is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Raf Mormors with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 4.161 billion Eraverians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fordmort. The average income tax rate is 75.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Eraverian economy, worth 979 trillion Supercoins a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 235,490 Supercoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

President Raf Mormors is famed for giving great back rubs, CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, citizens finish cleaning up after the annual National Treasure Hunt just in time for the next one, and the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Eraver's national animal is the Springbok, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Eraverism.

Eraver is ranked 19,450th in the world and 387th in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 50.37 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
