The Corporatocracy of Esterlon is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Daniel Falkner with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, keen interest in outer space, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.3 billion Esterlonians 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 tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ambersyell. The average income tax rate is 5.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Esterlonian economy, worth a remarkable 3,251 trillion NationStates Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 287,764 NationStates Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, romantic sunsets are no longer interrupted by explosions and monstrous roars, you need a signed affidavit from a registered psychiatrist to claim that you have crazy low prices, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Esterlon's national animal is the Robotic Pigeon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is corporate domination.

Esterlon is ranked 3,545th in the world and 2nd in New Hyperion for Highest Economic Output, with 3,251 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
