The Republic of Estandarte is a huge, safe nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, strictly enforced bedtime, and digital currency. The hard-working population of 752 million estandarteans 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buena Vista. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.7%.

The all-consuming estandartean economy, worth 95.9 trillion Estandars a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 127,482 Estandars, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government seizes all major gold finds, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, there's never enough space in space, and jury selection begins with explaining what a jury is. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Estandarte's national animal is the Cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Estandarte is ranked 76,064th in the world and 4th in The South Atlantic for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50.5 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
