The Yeeter of Erfton is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Jason Special Penguin with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 5.082 billion Erftonians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Penguin Hills. The average income tax rate is 80.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Erftonian economy, worth 667 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 131,294 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, parking's carefree without parking car fees, love means always having to say you're sorry, and discarded pennies litter the streets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Erfton's national animal is the Penguins, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is The Faith.

Erfton is ranked 82,990th in the world and 3,069th in the South Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,370.13 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
