The Unified Social Republic of Estovik is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister William Royce with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate population of 5.525 billion Estovikians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gyista. The average income tax rate is 93%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Estovik's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, its national religion is Protestantism, and its currency is the Estovian Shilling.
