The Confederation of Estandarte is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Urbano with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, state-planned economy, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 4.59 billion Estandarteans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buena Vista. The average income tax rate is 87.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Estandartean economy, worth a remarkable 1,369 trillion Pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 298,463 Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

President Urbano has more friends than ever before, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Estandarte's national animal is the Capybara, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Romanism.

Estandarte is ranked 74,861st in the world and 3,545th in the South Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 48.97 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
