The Imperialist State of Estovlaka is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory vegetarianism, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 13.504 billion Estovlakans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berlin. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Estovlakan economy, worth a remarkable 1,353 trillion Estoes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,252 Estoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

No suburban lawn is complete without barbed wire and landmines, engine room hooch is the drink of choice among the nation's navy, all work and no play has rendered the nation's children somewhat intelligent but also remarkably dull, and Estovlakan watches list strained wrists as a common side effect. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Estovlaka's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Estovlaka is ranked 16,049th in the world and 2nd in Got Issues for Most Cultured, scoring 92 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
