The Kingdom of Esplandia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Sherwin V with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.56 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karthied. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Esplandish economy, worth 782 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 extensive. Average income is an impressive 140,826 Crown Florents, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 422,479 per year while the poor average 36,666, a ratio of 11.5 to 1.

Cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists, old warplanes and tanks that break down can't be repaired since no one makes the parts anymore, and new cases of Asbestosis are cropping up as quickly as hospitals can deal with them. 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 101,033rd in the world and 5,490th in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 35.94 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
