The Polbearian Protectorate of Esparmuran is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Jim Oullie with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, flagrant waste-dumping, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 13.671 billion Espars have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vrå. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 60.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Espar economy, worth a remarkable 1,453 trillion Espar Kroner a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,326 Espar Kroner, with the richest citizens earning 9.9 times as much as the poorest.

The Snapgram channel "Embarrassing Baby Prime Minister Jim Oullie Pics" has made Prime Minister Jim Oullie's mom a celebrity, the entire entry for Esparmuran in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', children are disappointed to learn that cavemen never had a yabba-dabba-doo time riding dinosaurs to work, and a widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat". Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Esparmuran's national animal is the Arctic Fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Esparmuran is ranked 14,693rd in the world and 10th in The Commonwealth of Crowns for Most Influential, scoring 2,263 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
