The Republic of Eprathusuti is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Yonas Zalelew with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 7.331 billion Eprathusutians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Spirituality, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wadera. The average income tax rate is 23.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Eprathusutian economy, worth 541 trillion Kinas 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. 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 73,847 Kinas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, the Communist Party claims that selling things for profit isn't necessarily capitalism, surfing lessons include how to ward off sharks, and cancer rates amongst the richest in society are inexplicably on the rise. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Eprathusuti's national animal is the Warthog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Zuwiti.

Eprathusuti is ranked 37,874th in the world and 2nd in Viking Europe for Most Armed, with 1.99 Weapons Per Person.
