The Republic of Estravia is a huge, safe nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 627 million Estravians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Liste. The average income tax rate is 49.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Estravian economy, worth 39.8 trillion eusovs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 63,499 eusovs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Battlefield gains are quickly lost when enemies don't respect a time-out, restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in Estravia, the government is known to care more about its buildings than its people, and the question of 'what is Leader's favorite color?' has been given a priority rating of burnt-orange. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Estravia's national animal is the lynx, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Estravia is ranked 65,392nd in the world and 18th in The United Islands of the Atlantic for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 3,582.37 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
