The I Bombed the Moon of Esplandia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Sherwin V with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.844 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 72.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Esplandish economy, worth a remarkable 1,013 trillion Crown Florents a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 148,127 Crown Florents, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 460,205 per year while the poor average 36,683, a ratio of 12.5 to 1.

All writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves, grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to King Sherwin V's wardrobe, and schoolboys trained in chivalry are encouraged to duel other boys for a maiden's hand. 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 7,386th in the world and 282nd in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 460,205.55 Standard Monetary Units.
