OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Essenhorn is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by William Adama with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 7.083 billion enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although the Environment and Social Welfare are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Essenhorn City. The average income tax rate is 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, and prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Essenhorn's national animal is the chimp, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the cred.

Essenhorn is ranked 3,507th in Lazarus and 114,869th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -6 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
