Location: The East Pacific

The Kingdom of Estande is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Filipe Gonçalves de Sá with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and vat-grown people. The compassionate population of 4.338 billion Estandér enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Estrada. The average income tax rate is 48.6%.

The powerhouse Estandér economy, worth 415 trillion escudoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 95,839 escudoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Armed security details escort librarians to their homes, garishly-decorated government buildings are being hailed as the height of 'religious nouveau', the nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny, and the dartboard at the Estandér Cancer Research Charity bears a picture of Filipe Gonçalves de Sá's face. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Estande's national animal is the estandér eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Sanguis Catholicism.

Estande is ranked 16,950th in the world and 454th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 8,623.01 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
