OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Democratic Republic of Esperanceland is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.634 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 has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby, the police force is on a recruitment drive, and citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked. 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 3,808th in the South Pacific and 107,107th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -33 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
