The Emergency government of Esteneng is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Lehiyelton Giahiien Sboneuls with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, avant-garde cinema, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 3.59 billion Estenengians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Divergaudiburg. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Estenengian economy, worth 246 trillion jailisos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Automobile Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 68,553 jailisos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Discarded pennies litter the streets, parents often leave their kids in the car while they attend mindfulness meditation sessions, viewers get headaches from trying to read the screen full of small print warnings that precede most TV shows, and cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Esteneng's national animal is the Pygosce penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Evangelicalism.

Esteneng is ranked 64,693rd in the world and 2,041st in The North Pacific for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 2,720.52 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
