The Republic of Esdar is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 573 million Esdarians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Olso. The average income tax rate is 60.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Esdarian economy, worth 61.7 trillion Esdaus a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 107,608 Esdaus, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Appliance stores are finding spy cameras embedded in their unboxed merchandise, the government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority, buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, and politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech. Crime is totally unknown. Esdar's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Esdar is ranked 27,707th in the world and 1,437th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,717.63 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
