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.

Couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material', the inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. Crime is totally unknown. Eriksville's national animal is the beagle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Eriksville is ranked 6,183rd in the world and 174th in The East Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 124,465.9 Standard Monetary Units.
