The RIP Claire of Esthe is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, avant-garde cinema, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 643 million Eshire have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Claire. The average income tax rate is 51.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Esthea economy, worth 54.0 trillion Hus a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,982 Hus, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, the blind lead the blind in social welfare, and Leader's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Esthe's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Esthe is ranked 40,204th in the world and 1,902nd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 69.44 on the Human Development Index.
