The Erickt of Erickt is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Jakob Homburg with an iron fist, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.517 billion Ericktians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ben Dover. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ericktian economy, worth a remarkable 2,595 trillion Donuts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 246,827 Donuts, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,042,910 per year while the poor average 37,795, a ratio of 27.6 to 1.

Only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens, edutainment video games are taking Erickt's students to the next level, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, and health inspectors are seen eating black truffle fondue with their bottled water. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Erickt's national animal is the War Rhino, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is None.

Erickt is ranked 7,924th in the world and 1st in Order of the Southern North for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 6,828.53 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
