The White Alpaca Conglomerate of Esternial is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Danny Sexbang with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, digital currency, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 19.772 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 75.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Esternialian economy, worth a remarkable 2,498 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 126,362 Ensils, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign spirits are hard to find due to an abundance of "Cletus and Jim Bob's Homemade Esternialian Moonshine", the nation's water should not be ingested while operating heavy machinery, military pistols are more secure than the national treasury, and serial killers who are released early distribute death but not their seed. 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 76,059th in the world and 6th in Snazzy for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 1,539.82 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
