The Oxford Comma of Esplandia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Irwin IV with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, infamous sell-swords, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 11.93 billion Esplandians 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 Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karthied. The average income tax rate is 83.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Esplandish economy, worth a remarkable 1,809 trillion Crown Florents a year, is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 151,667 Crown Florents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Being wrong on the internet has been classified as digital terrorism, the Karthied Film Festival recently voted 'Esplandian Getting Hit By Football' as best film, loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly, and chewing tree bark proves to have limited value during childbirth. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 5,015th in the world and 234th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 408 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
