The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 25.723 billion Estrildians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.
The enormous but underdeveloped Esterildian economy, worth a remarkable 1,862 trillion spider drawings a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology.
