The Serene Republic of Essena is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor Abraham Moore with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, devout population of 6.786 billion Essenians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fredericksburg. The average income tax rate is 61.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Essenian economy, worth 518 trillion Dollarmarks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 76,472 Dollarmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, many parents are becoming frustrated with their children's choices in spouses, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, and citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Essena's national animal is the Great Buck, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Essena is ranked 37,739th in the world and 89th in The Western Isles for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 4,341.24 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
