The United Republic of Espanto is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Alexandre Manteau with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, ban on automobiles, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 2.389 billion Espantoans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Otalé. The average income tax rate is 48.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Espantoan economy, worth 255 trillion Netas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,996 Netas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, the people consider response to rudeness to be an acceptable casus belli, music teachers are commonly seen busking in order to fund their music programs, and waste is frequently shipped to other countries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Espanto's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Espanto is ranked 188,574th in the world and 8,203rd in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 6.84 Obesity Rate.
