OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Democratic Republic of Esperanceland is a colossal, economically powerful nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.12 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.

The government is giving peace a chance, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, and euthanasia is legal. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate. 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 4,256th in the South Pacific and 115,036th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -18 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
