The Slow Hand of Eric Clapton is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Slow Hand with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 16.229 billion Eric Claptonians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ripley Surrey. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Eric Claptonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,305 trillion Slow Hands a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 142,045 Slow Hands, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 times as much as the poorest.

Urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, and the nation's faithful often say there is a higher power watching over them. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem. Eric Clapton's national animal is the Blues Guitar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnostic Pantheism.

Eric Clapton is ranked 148,473rd in the world and 338th in NationStates for Most Authoritarian, with 510.09 milliStalins.
