From the Paper:

"Fiscal policy is a tool used by federal governments to regulate the economy. This paper provides a summary of a simulation for using fiscal policy tools to manage a fictitious country called Erehwon. Erehwon is a small country with a population of 30 million with an average income of $1,300. The literacy rate is 56% for males and 35% for females. Only11 million individuals are in the labor force and 20% of the population lives below the poverty line. The country suffers from an inadequate infrastructure for transportation, communication and banking services. The government must manage the fiscal tools of government spending and taxation to improve the health of the economy and strengthen the country's infrastructure."
