Overview Factbook Dispatches Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Esplandia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King Sherwin V with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.992 billion Esplandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karthied. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Esplandish economy, worth 678 trillion Crown Florents a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 135,946 Crown Florents, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.

Sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors, political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, Maxtopian villagers starve by the time Esplandish officials even file the appropriate paperwork needed to help them, and all government communication requires the imprimatur of the Truth Police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Esplandia's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Aelostianism.

Esplandia is ranked 7,693rd in the world and 421st in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 87.6 on the Human Development Index.
