The United Provinces of Estanglia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jan Halterra with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 7.194 billion Estanglians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Velita. The average income tax rate is 63.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Estanglian economy, worth 420 trillion Eanars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 58,449 Eanars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Students do more community service than homework, the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, and newspapers are running a front-page picture of Jan Halterra holding a crowbar and standing over a bloodied stockbroker. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Estanglia's national animal is the Estanglian Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Naveralism.

Estanglia is ranked 160,189th in the world and 353rd in Europeia for Most Armed, with 0.27 Weapons Per Person.
