The Cheap Thrills of Esfalsa is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its parental licensing program, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.884 billion Esfalsans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ricubai. The average income tax rate is 88.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Esfalsan economy, worth a remarkable 1,537 trillion Fallors a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 110,713 Fallors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tipsy fans frequently invite themselves to the board meetings of sports clubs, celebrities sit helplessly as they are labeled "pompous womples" by Leader, visitors often mistake the toiletplex at music festivals for the main stage, and mandatory state-funded classes teach Libertarianism. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Esfalsa's national animal is the grey goshawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is agnosticism.

Esfalsa is ranked 244,869th in the world and 9,128th in the South Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
