The United Socialist States of Esalia is a very large, genial nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 177 million Esalians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Esalian economy, worth 3.68 trillion vutenars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 20,771 vutenars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and autocrats are persona non grata. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Esalia's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Esalia is ranked 10,402nd in the world and 96th in Europeia for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 26.75 Bank.
