The Allied States of Esterild is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by someone like Russ Feingold with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 28.373 billion Estrildians 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 Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Esterildian economy, worth a remarkable 2,208 trillion spider drawings a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 77,844 spider drawings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers, jail house rock has been replaced with jail house golden oldies, seasonal hay-fever sufferers are attending government drug counselling sessions to get free doughnuts, and five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Esterild's national animal is the platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Esterild is ranked 4,661st in the world and 55th in Forest for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 10,605.82 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
