The Empire of Estals is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Waryn with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.657 billion Estalsians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Colnt. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Estalsian economy, worth 241 trillion Rals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 146,005 Rals, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, the practice of capital punishment proves divisive, the "Dreadnowt" is the pride and joy of the Estalsian Navy, and promising seven years of bad luck leads to seven years of community service. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Estals's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Estals is ranked 8,935th in the world and 1st in Greater Cyngland for Most Developed, scoring 90.92 on the Human Development Index.
