The Ladder in the Pool of Life of EstRADia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Alpada Zaboodoo with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, compulsory military service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 13.188 billion Estradis are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bolisahar. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.8%.

The frighteningly efficient EstRADian economy, worth a remarkable 3,438 trillion Tradens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 260,706 Tradens, with the richest citizens earning 9.6 times as much as the poorest.

Immersive video game experiences are interrupted by incessant disclaimer pop-ups, the EstRADian war navy contains an oddly large number of luxury yachts and cruise liners, Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, and Zombie Koalas are frequently shot for looking at people 'in a funny way'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 7,395th in the world and 9th in International Northwestern Union for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 441.83 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
