The Republic of Espoo is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons and absence of drug laws. The hard-working, democratic population of 2.258 billion Espooans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Welfare, although Education, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Law & Order and Spirituality receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.7%.

The very strong Espooan economy, worth 95.8 trillion markkaa a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 42,430 markkaa, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Espoo's national animal is the Brown Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Espoo is ranked 158,273rd in the world and 68th in Passchendaele for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 225.24 Tourists Per Hour.
