The Kingdom of Espeon LD is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Veraya with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.735 billion Espeonicans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Laurence. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 50.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Espeon LDian economy, worth 833 trillion Dias a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 175,925 Dias, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Queen Veraya's wardrobe, the tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists, and literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Espeon LD's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Starlight Faith.

Espeon LD is ranked 69,774th in the world and 58th in Institute of Cellulose for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 5.41 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
