The Glistening Lavender Fields of Espeonica is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.803 billion Espeonicans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Espeonica City. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Espeonican economy, worth a remarkable 1,548 trillion spoons 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 112,198 spoons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Passive-aggressive congratulations cards inform mums-to-be that their pregnancy is their greatest achievement in life, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, glamping Espeonicans won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, and footballers are doing aerobics in the sauna to build their hot weather endurance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Espeonica's national animal is the feline, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Espeonica is ranked 14,085th in the world and 1st in BENEVOLENT EMPIRE for Highest Poor Incomes, with 94,832.03 Standard Monetary Units.
