The Aureole of Eslua is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Sasarai with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, national health service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 2.011 billion Esluans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Spirituality, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crystal Valley. The average income tax rate is 71.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Esluan economy, worth 219 trillion Potches a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 109,086 Potches, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, the comic book series 'Sasarai and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, the government is giving peace a chance, and coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eslua's national animal is the Silver Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Circle.

Eslua is ranked 95,967th in the world and 5,793rd in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
