The United Republic of Espanto is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Alexandre Manteau with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, smutty television, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 2.213 billion Espantoans 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 Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Otalé. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Espantoan economy, worth 242 trillion Netas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 109,671 Netas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 330,000 per year while the poor average 28,433, a ratio of 11.6 to 1.
The government supplies ragtag bands of resistance fighters in exchange for vague promises of future payment, if a tree falls in the forest Alexandre Manteau is personally notified, students and teachers are regularly stopped and searched for symbols of religious affiliation before class, and the police have been known to wiretap confessional boxes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Espanto's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.
