The Cool Temperate Rainforests of Errinundera is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its national health service, ban on automobiles, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 33.812 billion Errinundrians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government is solely concerned with Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of First Creek Falls. The average income tax rate is 1.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Errinundrian economy, worth 352 trillion bolas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, extremely specialized black market in Book Publishing and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 10,418 bolas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, and late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Leader's questionably sane new coalition partners. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Errinundera's national animal is the sniffer wombat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Errinundera is ranked 205,415th in the world and 456th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -63.95 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
