The Royal Kingdom of Costa Estre is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Queen Beauty Aleena II with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, prohibition of alcohol, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 15.941 billion Estrenians 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 relatively small government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marina Bay. The average income tax rate is 29.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Costa Estrenian economy, worth a remarkable 4,370 trillion estranus dimes a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 274,173 estranus dimes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most academic research has ground to a halt, scientific progress marches ever forward with the first ever launch of a cheeseburger into space, soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, and the government encourages conflict abroad to increase arms sales. Crime is totally unknown. Costa Estre's national animal is the royal tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Costa Estre is ranked 205,439th in the world and 7,541st in the South Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.29 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
