The Erickt of Erickt is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Jakob Homburg with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.175 billion Ericktians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ben Dover. The average income tax rate is 21.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ericktian economy, worth a remarkable 3,421 trillion Donuts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 280,986 Donuts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Diaper sales are up, people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, and no one gossips with Jakob Homburg during diplomatic summits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Erickt's national animal is the War Rhino, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is None.

Erickt is ranked 243,423rd in the world and 8th in Order of the Southern North for Best Weather, with -330 Meters Of Sunlight.
