The Democratic Republic of Esperanceland is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its ritual sacrifices, surprisingly youthful workforce, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 7.351 billion Esperancelandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Healthcare and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 9.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Esperancelandian economy, worth 664 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 90,359 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, the police force is on a recruitment drive, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Esperanceland's national animal is the Dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Esperanceland is ranked 4,166th in the South Pacific and 112,810th in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -8 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
