The Celestial Empire of Esplandia California is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.93 billion Esplandian Californians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Ramon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 50.4%.

The strong Esplandian Californian economy, worth 115 trillion Bucks a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 60,099 Bucks, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.

Several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, the media have begun calling the government treasury "Leader's stash", it's considered a valid legal defence to say "a demon made me do it", and kids laugh off vandalism and arson as "just fun". Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Esplandia California's national animal is the Great Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Esplandia California is ranked 71,124th in the world and 1,972nd in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 115 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
