The Royal Kingdom of Costa Estre is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Queen Beauty Aleena II with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, unlimited-speed roads, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.129 billion Estrenians 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.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marina Bay. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Costa Estrenian economy, worth a remarkable 5,018 trillion estranus dimes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 292,995 estranus dimes, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

The new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", meat is a luxury afforded only to the wealthy, economics is a shrinking field, and the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused. Crime is totally unknown. Costa Estre's national animal is the royal tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Islam.

Costa Estre is ranked 8,765th in the world and 283rd in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 11,534.62 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
