The Democratic Republic of Esteneng is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Lehiyelton Giahiien Sboneuls with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 943 million Estenengians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Divergaudiburg. The average income tax rate is 62.6%.

The strong Estenengian economy, worth 62.6 trillion jailisos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 66,352 jailisos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Lehiyelton Giahiien Sboneuls has just been declared ruler of Esteneng in an international press conference, the government tries not to listen to the people unless it absolutely has to, the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, and designer truncheons are the latest law enforcement fashion craze. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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.

Esteneng is ranked 152,952nd in the world and 6,925th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.79 percentage of bribes refused.
