The Democratic Republic of Erskentania is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Alessandra Fekanzki with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.035 billion Erskentanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pakern. The average income tax rate is 39.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Erskentanian economy, worth 60.4 trillion Zizets a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Automobile Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 58,319 Zizets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government encourages conflict abroad to increase arms sales, there are six more weeks of winter if a northerner sees his shadow, signs saying "No Poor People or Weirdoes" are common outside shops and cafés, and suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Erskentania's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Erskentania is ranked 41,655th in the world and 1st in Alcodia for Most Secular, with 32.07 Atheism Rate.
