The Republic of Estandarte is a huge, safe nation, ruled by President with an even hand, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-working population of 764 million 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.3%.

The frighteningly efficient estandartean economy, worth 97.9 trillion Estandars a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 128,164 Estandars, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, President is considering changing the nation's name to Blackacre, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Estandarte is ranked 171,315th in the world and 5th in The South Atlantic for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -7.07 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
