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 otherworldly petting zoo, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.499 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 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial Esplanadean economy, worth a remarkable 1,735 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 150,907 Imperial Royales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A life spent suffering in silence is considered noble, 'Domestic Wolfnado 6: You Gotta Be Kidding Me' is this summer's top-grossing movie, preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, and Queen Emmy Langlois's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week. 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 12,195th in the world and 8th in Cobalt Network for Most Inclusive, scoring 163.45 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
