The Megatropolian Technocracy of Esmerel is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Charles Richmond with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 6.195 billion Esmerelians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lapiz Point. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Esmerelian economy, worth a remarkable 1,707 trillion NationStates Dollars a year, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 275,666 NationStates Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", selfie stick use is a required Scout badge, private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, and Esmerel's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Esmerel's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Esmerel is ranked 674th in the world and 1st in New Hyperion for Most Developed, scoring 97.9 on the Human Development Index.
