The Kingdom of Estingberg is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Felixson Emil with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 9.945 billion Estings are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Defense, Environment, and Law & Order are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Volonia. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Estingbergian economy, worth a remarkable 1,965 trillion Gunineas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 197,644 Gunineas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Twelve Steps To Logging Off is the most popular mobile download, the government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest, and a little pushing and pulling is needed for big ships to pass. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Estingberg's national animal is the Feline, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Northern Orthodoxy.

Estingberg is ranked 273,230th in the world and 1,002nd in Europeia for Most Avoided, scoring 0.42 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
