The United Kingdom of Esten islands is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working population of 699 million Esten islandsians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Harpy Valley. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.5%.

The very strong Esten islandsian economy, worth 60.7 trillion White Silvers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is 86,896 White Silvers, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend, editorials that criticize the government are legally obligated to display the "pants on fire" warning, the government's economic policy is "sort it yourself", and elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Esten islands's national animal is the harpy, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Esten islands is ranked 72,266th in the world and 35th in Caer Sidi for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 190,446 Standard Monetary Units.
