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 15.274 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, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.7%.

The powerhouse Espiritian economy, worth 724 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 47,430 betales, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 162,723 per year while the poor average 10,146, 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 26,817th in the world and 7th in London for Most Politically Free, scoring 80.67 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
