The Dictatorship of Estriacea is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 327 million Estriaceans 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carolgrad. The average income tax rate is 45.2%.

The thriving Estriacean economy, worth 31.1 trillion Yueals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 95,081 Yueals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Nobody draws smiley faces on receipts anymore, rumor has it that Leader has won three lotteries in a row, former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, and couch potatoes are considered to be model citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Estriacea's national animal is the Thorny Devil, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Estriacea is ranked 27,387th in the world and 1,014th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 5,370.47 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
