The Ladder in the Pool of Life of EstRADia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Alpada Zabudu with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, unlimited-speed roads, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 19.358 billion Estradis 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 Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bolisahar. The average income tax rate is 80.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient EstRADian economy, worth a remarkable 5,364 trillion Tradens a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Tourism, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 277,108 Tradens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is automatically assumed to be the source of all unmarked weapons, the army's use of chemical weapons leaves a bad taste in the mouth, the government puts forth the claim that harming young girls is wrong, and community organizers have given up going door to door because nobody is home. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. EstRADia's national animal is the Zombie Koala, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Zacarism.

EstRADia is ranked 269,781st in the world and 21st in International Northwestern Union for Most Avoided, scoring 0.53 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
