|Leader||The Communist Party of Estau|
|Animal||Panthera leo krugeri|
The Democratic People's Republic of Estau is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by The Communist Party of Estau with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 9.415 billion Comrades are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.
The enormous, corrupt, liberal, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Education, although Welfare, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Es-Pret. The average income tax rate is 78.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Comrade economy, worth a remarkable 1,017 trillion People's Diprates a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 108,091 People's Diprates, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
A referendum must be held in order for any new law to be passed, the government is spending millions on 'trust campaigns' in an effort to win back the public's support, Comrades are free from pain - but the side effects include loss of individual thought and freedom, and many junior high school teachers minor in midwifery. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Estau's national animal is the Panthera leo krugeri, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Communism.
