The No Pretitle of Esfalsa is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.98 billion Esfalsans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ricubai. The average income tax rate is 86.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Esfalsan economy, worth a remarkable 1,180 trillion Esfalsan dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 107,552 Esfalsan dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, political detractors refer to Leader as 'that Bigtopian puppet', and treason is relative. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Esfalsa's national animal is the Esfalsan spider monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is agnosticism.

Esfalsa is ranked 41,738th in the world and 1,239th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 77.43 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
