The Holy Catholic Empire of Erstavik is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Emperor Luke I with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 1.313 billion Erstavikians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Burgsvik. The average income tax rate is 62.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Erstavikian economy, worth 153 trillion Erstavik Pennings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,264 Erstavik Pennings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables, out-of-work actors say they can't complain, students who refuse to pray are expelled from school, and the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Erstavik's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Erstavik is ranked 45,439th in the world and 2,170th in the South Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 62.7 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
