The Ladder in the Pool of Life of EstRADia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Alpada Zabudu with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 16.415 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 78.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient EstRADian economy, worth a remarkable 4,456 trillion Tradens a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Tourism, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 271,499 Tradens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 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 176,627th in the world and 18th in International Northwestern Union for Most Extreme, scoring 11.46 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
