The Commonwealth of Eriksville is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Koning Erik with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, national health service, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.145 billion Eriksvilleans 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, with Healthcare, Environment, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blankevoort City. The average income tax rate is 82.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Eriksvillean economy, worth a remarkable 1,186 trillion Guilders a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 145,639 Guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
