The Democratic Republic of Esperanceland is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its national health service. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 5.654 billion 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 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, nude art is becoming wildly popular, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, and space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a serious problem. 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 4,525th in the South Pacific and 120,596th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -11 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
