The White Alpaca Conglomerate of Esternial is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Danny Sexbang with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 19.817 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, socially-minded 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%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Esternialian economy, worth a remarkable 2,527 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 127,531 Ensils, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme, politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, and the government decides its policies by observing the flight of birds. 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 145,209th in the world and 9th in Snazzy for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -8.53 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
