The Community of Terra Den Esperanza is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.094 billion Esperanzans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 80.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Esperanzan economy, worth 131 trillion seashells a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 119,967 seashells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Surfing lessons include how to ward off sharks, guide dogs for the blind have been seen using government websites, Terra Den Esperanza is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, and serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk. Crime is totally unknown. Terra Den Esperanza's national animal is the crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Terra Den Esperanza is ranked 14,745th in the world and 698th in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 9,361.12 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
