The Kingdom of Estagantes is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Blake with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 4.682 billion Estagantesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alsast. The average income tax rate is 94.9%.

The large but stagnant Estagantesian economy, worth 119 trillion Pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports and Information Technology. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 25,571 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People talk about things being better when men were men, tourists are forbidden to enter Native Estagantesian lands, debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, and the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Estagantes's national animal is the Horslion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Estagantes is ranked 2,930th in the world and 7th in Wintreath for Safest, scoring 134.91 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
