The God of Factbooks of Esplandia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Irwin IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 11.019 billion Esplandians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karthied. The average income tax rate is 81.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Esplandish economy, worth a remarkable 1,713 trillion Crown Florents a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 155,483 Crown Florents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Immigrants who don't like the taste of Esplandish Turnip Chips are immediately deported, police nightsticks see use all day long, foreign musicians that Emperor Irwin IV dislikes are turned away at the border, and international trade is a sticky issue. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Esplandia's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Aelostianism.

Esplandia is ranked 132,543rd in the world and 5,977th in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 164.01 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
