The Allied States of Esterild is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by someone like Russ Feingold with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 25.379 billion Estrildians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Esterildian economy, worth a remarkable 1,827 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 72,000 spider drawings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, not even good behaviour will get transgender inmates any special perks, there's never a spare chair in the retirement home, and a degree in Someone Like Russ Feingold Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers. 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 301,540th in the world and 342nd in Forest for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -43.39 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
