The Corporate Republic of Espacito is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Caribbean Petroleum Corporation with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete lack of prisons, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 2.55 billion Espacitoans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Despacito. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Espacitoan economy, worth 489 trillion Espacito Bucks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 192,046 Espacito Bucks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,053,105 per year while the poor average 17,835, a ratio of 59.0 to 1.

The government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, corporations claim the third ounce of any metal traded in a wicker-cone on the Sunday of a full moon as a charitable expense, colonials are offended to find a local animal has been re-named the 'Furry Four-Legged Marsupial Coquí', and chocolate in Espacito has its flavour enhanced by the salty tears of enslaved factory workers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Espacito's national animal is the Coquí, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Espacito is ranked 145,642nd in the world and 25th in Blood and Iron Dictatorship for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.51 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
