The Ladder in the Pool of Life of EstRADia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Alpada Zabudu with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 15.419 billion Estradis 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bolisahar. The average income tax rate is 75.5%.

The frighteningly efficient EstRADian economy, worth a remarkable 4,287 trillion Tradens a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Tourism, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 278,054 Tradens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, Zombie Koalas are frequently shot for looking at people 'in a funny way', a ban on robots in disguise has transformed the entertainment industry, and polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. EstRADia's national animal is the Zombie Koala, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Zacarism.

EstRADia is ranked 191,423rd in the world and 29th in International Northwestern Union for Best Weather, with 79 Meters Of Sunlight.
