The Kingdom of Estande is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Filipe Gonçalves de Sá with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.05 billion Estandér are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Estrada. The average income tax rate is 45.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Estandér economy, worth 366 trillion escudoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 90,393 escudoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, lifeguards are stationed on the streets during rainstorms, and the government loves seeing the little people fight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Estande's national animal is the estandér eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Sanguis Catholicism.

Estande is ranked 227,902nd in the world and 8,990th in The East Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -10 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
