The Empire of Eridue is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, pith helmet sales, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.851 billion Eridueans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Eriduean economy, worth 393 trillion Karls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 138,157 Karls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Getting an autograph has become harder than ever, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, chickens roam the streets freely, and nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Eridue's national animal is the Emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Eridue is ranked 170,861st in the world and 7,421st in The East Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -4.56 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
