The Community of Kingdum of Estlan is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 267 million Esfanites 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Esfand's Palace. The average income tax rate is 43.2%.

The strong Estlanese economy, worth 15.0 trillion Prunes a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Retail, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 56,351 Prunes, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Brown Sugar 101 is a popular course at community colleges, fruit vendors are encouraging a life of crime in their advertising, supermarkets and large corporate farms are a thing of the past, and Kingdum of Estlan has designated Esfand's Palace as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kingdum of Estlan's national animal is the Esfand the Mule, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Kingdum of Estlan is ranked 147,638th in the world and 5,250th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -64.85 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
