The Classic of Esfalsa is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.119 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 1,563 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 267,526th in the world and 11,683rd in the South Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -12.41 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
