The Royal Kingdom of Costa Estre is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Queen Beauty Aleena II with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 13.971 billion Estrenians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marina Bay. The average income tax rate is 33.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Costa Estrenian economy, worth a remarkable 3,624 trillion estranus dimes a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 259,448 estranus dimes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Religious epiphanies are often cited as a reason for high school drop-outs, hospitals scramble for new disinfectants following a ban on rubbing alcohol, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, and visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub. Crime is totally unknown. Costa Estre's national animal is the royal tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Islam.

Costa Estre is ranked 26,758th in the world and 803rd in the South Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,509.27 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
