The Greater Empire of Estainia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Basilinna Alexandros Artémis with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 22.498 billion Imperials are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athínapolis. The average income tax rate is 17.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 3,914 trillion Silver Thalers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 174,008 Silver Thalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Garishly-decorated government buildings are being hailed as the height of 'religious nouveau', the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', third world countries are rich in "I Love Athínapolis" t-shirts, and corporate lawyers are switching careers to the more lucrative field of green politics. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Estainia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Luciellanism.

Estainia is ranked 908th in the world and 1st in Rostil for Most Cultured, scoring 319 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
