The Kingdom of Eshialand is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King William I with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.276 billion Eshians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, although Administration, Education, and Welfare are also considered important, while Law & Order and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eshialand City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Eshian economy, worth 542 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 165,605 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 499,052 per year while the poor average 42,843, a ratio of 11.6 to 1.

Politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, parents are relieved they no longer need to help with their kids' algebra homework, the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery, and the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Eshialand's national animal is the owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Pastafarianism.

Eshialand is ranked 18,027th in the world and 21st in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,663.97 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
