The Allied States of Esterild is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by someone like Russ Feingold with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 19.822 billion Estrildians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The enormous but inefficient Esterildian economy, worth a remarkable 1,605 trillion spider drawings a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 80,971 spider drawings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Esterildian tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation, owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation, Someone like Russ Feingold is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, and holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Esterild's national animal is the platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Esterild is ranked 206,966th in the world and 433rd in Forest for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -14.3 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
