OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Democratic Republic of Esperanceland is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.745 billion Esperancelandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal individuals devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and Esperanceland's airwaves are dominated by corporate-backed commercial radio. Crime is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Esperanceland's national animal is the Dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Dollar.

Esperanceland is ranked 69th in the South Pacific and 3,555th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 118 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
