The Republic of Estandarte is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Aseido with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.029 billion estandarteans 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buena Vista. The average income tax rate is 26.9%.

The frighteningly efficient estandartean economy, worth 144 trillion Estandartean Pesos a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 140,178 Estandartean Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

90% of active duty EAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, drivers regularly pull over for nonexistent police cars, no cul-de-sac or trailer park is complete without a gambling parlor, and the Hanging Gardens account for half of Buena Vista's water use. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Estandarte's national animal is the Capybara, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Estandarte is ranked 99,471st in the world and 6th in The South Atlantic for Most Influential, scoring 127 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
