The Most Serene Republic of Esterni is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 340 million Esternians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Esternian economy, worth 16.6 trillion Bells a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Tourism, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 48,937 Bells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is a crime to offend someone's religious beliefs, the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, and Esterni has designated Esterni City as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Esterni's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Esterni is ranked 24,101st in the world and 711th in The East Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 88.38 Years.
