The Serene Republic of Essena is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chancellor Marcus Harrison with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, zero percent divorce rate, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, devout population of 8.08 billion Essenians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jofferyton. The average income tax rate is 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Essenian economy, worth 655 trillion Dollarmarks a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 81,102 Dollarmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, snooze factory is now prison lingo for rehabilitation center, short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants, and theft is considered to be okay if the crime happened a long time ago. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Essena's national animal is the Great Buck, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Essena is ranked 21,698th in the world and 59th in The Western Isles for Lowest Crime Rates, with 80.41 law-abiding acts per hour.
