The Queen's State of Espirit is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 12.278 billion Espiritians enjoy frequent elections, which are uniformly corrupted by big-spending corporations buying politicians who best suit their interests.

The minute, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.8%.

The powerhouse Espiritian economy, worth 571 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 46,584 betales, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 159,819 per year while the poor average 9,965, a ratio of 16.0 to 1.

Voting is voluntary, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and Espirit has designated Capital Heights as its capital city. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Espirit's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Espirit is ranked 111,948th in the world and 8th in London for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 49.5 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
