|Leader||HM King William I|
The Kingdom of Esslea is a massive, safe nation, ruled by HM King William I with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.096 billion Essleans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Essleya. The average income tax rate is 50.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Esslean economy, worth 174 trillion Angots a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. Average income is 83,209 Angots, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
Some people will do literally anything to be in the spotlight, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, pedal-powered removal vans are a popular Maxxmas gift for the children of separated parents, and advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Esslea's national animal is the Aurantiaco Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is None.
