The Monarchy-Republic Hybrid of Imperial Esplanade is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Queen Emmy Langlois with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.764 billion Imperial Esplanadeans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alliancia. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial Esplanadean economy, worth a remarkable 2,229 trillion Imperial Royales a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 151,009 Imperial Royales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Internet service is too costly for normal people to purchase, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned spouses, and babies are increasingly seen as a luxury. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imperial Esplanade's national animal is the Domestic Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Imperial Esplanade is ranked 217,731st in the world and 19th in Cobalt Network for Most Secular, with 2.87 Atheism Rate.
