The Economic Empire of Eseral is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by William shizvoult II with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.079 billion Eseralians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kriegsstadt. The average income tax rate is 77.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Eseralian economy, worth a remarkable 1,086 trillion zesrals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 213,870 zesrals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Water fights now end with thousands dead, the government advises foreign diplomats to speak softly and carry a big bag of cash, young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield, and the nation's poor can be seen scavenging trash bins for used coffee grounds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eseral's national animal is the volcaina egale, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the House of Gott.

Eseral is ranked 4,433rd in the world and 107th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 7,319.44 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
