The No Pretitle of Esfalsa is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.704 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ricubai. The average income tax rate is 86.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Esfalsan economy, worth a remarkable 1,145 trillion Esfalsan dollars 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 107,013 Esfalsan dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sermons are regularly interrupted by businessmen taking phone calls, politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, and political detractors refer to Leader as 'that Bigtopian puppet'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Esfalsa's national animal is the Esfalsan spider monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is agnosticism.

Esfalsa is ranked 7,251st in the world and 249th in the South Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,820.36 Tourists Per Hour.
