The Commonwealth of Esdraelia is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.601 billion Esdraelians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Augusztgrad. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.1%.

The thriving Esdraelian economy, worth a remarkable 1,074 trillion Crown Sterlings a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 162,712 Crown Sterlings, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 930,382 per year while the poor average 13,761, a ratio of 67.6 to 1.

The government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, the commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Esdraelia with a very polite populace, there's a bright dawn ahead for Esdraelia, and cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Esdraelia's national animal is the Direwolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Esdraelia is ranked 10,075th in the world and 432nd in Lazarus for Most Pro-Market, scoring 84 on the Rand Index.
