The Front Porch Sittin' Republic of Eskvenn is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by John Monroe with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, ritual sacrifices, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.932 billion Eskvennians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Charleston. The average income tax rate is 36.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Eskvennian economy, worth 506 trillion Eskvennian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 102,628 Eskvennian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Government ministers are regularly seen in the streets confessing their sins and hammering missiles into plow-shares, a proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII', boys are forced to pair off for the school disco slow dance as the girls are all staying at home, and minstrels carrying coconut shells provide sound effects wherever their nobles wander. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eskvenn's national animal is the Dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Eskvenn is ranked 214,823rd in the world and 7,266th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 220.27 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
