The Aureole of Eslua is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Sasarai with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, zero percent divorce rate, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 2.52 billion Esluans 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 large government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Spirituality, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crystal Valley. The average income tax rate is 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Esluan economy, worth 284 trillion Potches a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,950 Potches, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, the government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Crystal Valley for fear of causing a fuss, vaccinations are mandatory, and parents are shocked to find out that having kids costs money. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eslua's national animal is the Silver Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Circle.

Eslua is ranked 46,705th in the world and 1,291st in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 284 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
