The Democratic Republic of Estellan is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Isaiah King with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.06 billion Estellanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constellatia. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Estellanian economy, worth 105 trillion Sinixes a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is 99,546 Sinixes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Frequent broken zippers have resulted in safety pins making a fashion comeback, judicial torture is outsourced overseas, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, and soylent products are an expensive commodity due to a lack of volunteers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Estellan's national animal is the Estellanian Short-Snouted Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Estellan is ranked 15,472nd in the world and 298th in Europe for Most Developed, scoring 86.8 on the Human Development Index.
