Eritreaball, officially known as the North Korea of Africa State of Eritrea is a sovereign state and Single-party presidential republic/Authoritarian Dictatorship in the Horn of Africa. His clay is composed of 8 subdivisions known as regions, along with his capital Eritrea-icon (division) Asmaraball, giving him a total area of 45,406 square miles, making him the 105th largest country in the world. With a population of only 4.475 million as of 2011, makes him the world's 118th most populous country, and one of the very unpopular human migration destinations.

His violent nature makes it a challenge for him to join any international organizations and alliances. Despite this, he was able to join the United Nations and become a member of the African Union.

He loves killing people, and is considered by some to be the one official countryball worse and more brutal than North Korea-icon North Koreaball. He is so terrible that many of Eritreaballs try to escape the country to migrate in Europe and Israel. Eriteaball hates this because he is very poor (he actually has the money to give his people a somewhat better life but doesn't because he doesn't care about them, unless they're his killing victims). He has no real friends as he is very insane but the closest thing would probably be a largely inactive terrorist organization (such as Islamic Unionball).

His national day is May 24th



Much of Eritreaball's early history is unknown of. Earliest records date back to Egyptian times, when Eritreaball was a part of Ancient Egyptian Empireball. Once Ancient Egyptian Empireball died and became irrelevant, the tribes of Ethiopiaball united to form Ethiopian Empireball. Eritreaball's history at this point had been stained with absolutely no change at all, and everyone being a farmer or a peasant or a peasant farmer repeatedly while empires came and went to rule over their clay.

Colonial Era

The first European countryballs to come into contact were Ottoman Empireball and Portugalball, both countryballs being rising empires. The regions that ancient Egypt were in were contested and fought over by Ethiopian Empireball and Ottoman Empireball. There was no fighting for a long time, but relations between the two were cold. Then, in 1538, Portugualball and Ottomanball began to fight for colonies in India. Ethiopiaball quickly took advantage of this and sided with Portugalball. Ottomanball reacted by sending its puppets against Ethiopian Empireball to fight them. Ethiopian Empireball, with the aid of the Eritrean peasants, fought back. Eritreaball, only an irrelevant part of the Ethiopian Empire, saw heavy casualties and fighting, and was also the only place where the Ottomans got out of their kebab lawn chairs to fight Ethiopian Empireball. Thanks to the irrelevant region, Ethiopian Empireball gained control of modern day Somaliaball and much of ancient Egypt, and since then, Ethiopian Empireball has been regarded to as the first country in history to ever remove kebab, with the title being re-invented by Serbiaball in the modern world. For many many years Eritreaball remained in the process it had been in: aid Ethiopian Empireball, then go back to working as a peasant. Finally change came in the 19th Century. Eritreaball was part of an Ottoman puppet nation which had forcefully allowed European colonization. Italyball, anxious to become an empire, colonized the region and gave it its name, Italian Eritreaball.

Post-Colonial Era

Later on Italian-Empire-icon Kingdom of Italyball allowed Abyssinia-icon Ethiopian Empireball to govern the region, which was quickly ended in WW2 when Abyssinia-icon Ethiopian Empireball was killed and then anschlussed by Italyball in a violent war using machine guns, airplanes, and even poison gas. During WW2 UK-icon UKball had beaten Italian-Empire-icon Kingdom of Italyball and placed him under British military administration and allied forces could determine his fate. In the absence of administration of Eritreaball's statues UK-icon UKball's administration continued for the remainder of WW2 until 1950 when USA-icon USAball passed a resolution with the agreement of UK-icon UKball formulating the creation of an autonomous Eritreaball with Abyssinia-icon Ethiopian Empireball. In 1952 Eritrea-icon (1952-1961), Eritreaball became independent from UK-icon UKball and was made an autonomous part Abyssinia-icon Ethiopian Empireball. In 1961 A civil war broke between Eritreaball and Abyssinia-icon Ethiopian Empireball and was annexed in 1962. Eritreaball's desire for independence began when the region was given back to the weak Ethiopian owners of the region (who, as previously mentioned, were some of the original owners).


In 1991 (the same year Lithuaniaball's hot temper had kicked in and caused the death of Sovietball and the relevance of countless countries across Europe) Eritreaball achieved independence from Ethiopiaball, who had been tired of fighting the relevance front that had been going on. Since then, Eritreaball has been a proud and relevant country. In 1995, Eritreaball was into war with Yemenball, who stole his clay in the Hanish Islands. Eritreaball went to war with Ethiopiaball again in 1998, and to war with Djiboutiball in 2008.

Personality Traits

Eritreaball is an insane yet reliable countryball (though is not loyal enough to anyone other than himself to prove it) that usually tries to find ways to show off its incredible strength. The countryball usually interacts with other regional countryballs, mainly those fairly close to the Arabian peninsula. He stays away from what his father does, and it is clear to tell that is because Eritreaball's father, Ethiopiaball, likely hates Eritreaball. This is due to weakness caused by the relevance of Eritrea as well as the fact that since the relevance of Eritrea, Ethiopia has widely been mocked by all the other African countryballs. Eritreaball is very similar to North Korea-icon North Koreaball but somehow manages be worse (which is seriously bad). Strangely, he has a neutral relationship with USA-icon USAball (probably only because they both hate ISISball).

Any countryball that hates ISIS-icon ISISball and Yemen-icon (division) Yemenball.


Earth-icon Almost everybody, but more importantly:

Life Skills

  1. Removing Terrorist from the premises.
  2. Strength. Eritreaball is no doubt a countryball that has been feared by India and others due to the mixture of insanity and strength in the countryball's personality.
  3. Killing ISISball and its allies. In one countryball comic (fairly recent) on reddit where Canadaball loses his sanity and allies with ISISball to conquer the world, the plan is foiled by Eritrea.
  4. Surviving apocalypses and terrorism. As mentioned in number 3, this countryball has survived all attempts of world domination (excluding WW2) and fought off the attackers.
  5. Of annoying everyone.
