The Democratic Republic of Estcharia is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 739 million Estcharians 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 Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Estburg. The average income tax rate is 43.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Estcharian economy, worth 87.4 trillion Estelds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 118,329 Estelds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Breast milk lattes are the newest fad among hip urbanites, pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, lifeguards are stationed on the streets during rainstorms, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Estcharia's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Estcharia is ranked 252,568th in the world and 380th in Concord for Most Extreme, scoring 9.28 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
