The Socialist Quiet One of Neo-Estonian Empire is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Empress Maria with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.421 billion Estonians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tallinn. The average income tax rate is 62.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Estonian economy, worth 445 trillion kroons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 100,670 kroons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road, and anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neo-Estonian Empire's national animal is the barn swallow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Atheism.

Neo-Estonian Empire is ranked 116,690th in the world and 4,478th in The East Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 466.76 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
