The Alpaca Conglomerate of Esternial is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Danny Sexbang with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 20.721 billion Esternalians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cyril. The average income tax rate is 76.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Esternialian economy, worth a remarkable 2,861 trillion Ensils a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 138,114 Ensils, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Fish with fish chips have become the new Esternialian food staple, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, and foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Esternial's national animal is the red panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Avedian.

Esternial is ranked 3,510th in the world and 6th in Snazzy for Highest Economic Output, with 2,861 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
