The Kingdom of Estrande is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King AŻgust II with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.197 billion Estrandish hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cuidick. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Estrandish economy, worth a remarkable 1,154 trillion Pondums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 222,190 Pondums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Replacement organs are grown in vats, Estrande has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police, and military parades quietly tiptoe their way through the streets. Crime is totally unknown. Estrande's national animal is the Seahorse, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Estrandish Humanist Church.

Estrande is ranked 117,304th in the world and 191st in Anteria for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 830.01 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
