The Kingdom of Estande is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Filipe Gonçalves de Sá with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 4.635 billion Estandér are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Estrada. The average income tax rate is 50.1%.

The thriving Estandér economy, worth 436 trillion escudoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,151 escudoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Maxtopian villagers starve by the time Estandér officials even file the appropriate paperwork needed to help them, every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name, and male politicians lose their jobs for staring too long at their female counterparts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Estande's national animal is the estandér eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Sanguis Catholicism.

Estande is ranked 53,296th in the world and 704th in The East Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 436 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
