The I Bombed the Moon of Esplandia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Sherwin V with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, public floggings, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.474 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 medium-sized, 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 70.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Esplandish economy, worth 982 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 151,721 Crown Florents, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 467,750 per year while the poor average 37,993, a ratio of 12.3 to 1.

Families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, blind students are at a disadvantage now that test papers printed in braille have been discontinued, years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details, and 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners. 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 124,498th in the world and 6,227th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 31.33 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
