The Kingdom of Espanto is a huge, genial nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 419 million Espantoans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Otalé. The average income tax rate is 30.4%.

The thriving Espantoan economy, worth 35.3 trillion Eglis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Retail, and Trout Farming. Average income is 84,289 Eglis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

The men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers, urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, the nation has learned that pulling out is messy, and small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Espanto's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Espanto is ranked 7,063rd in the world and 412th in The North Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 7,698.29 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
