The United Socialist States of Episte is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Science with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.744 billion Episteans 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Episte City. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Epistean economy, worth 360 trillion Gils a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 131,213 Gils, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lavish state dinners in Episte City are the state's leading budgetary expenditure, ignorance is considered a politically desirable quality, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, and five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Episte's national animal is the cheetah, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Episte is ranked 5,977th in the world and 14th in Cape of Good Hope for Smartest Citizens, with 119.07 quips per hour.
