The Commonwealth of United Counties of Escanaba is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by J R R Tolkien with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 18.054 billion Escanabans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great Bend. The average income tax rate is 85.7%.
The frighteningly efficient United Counties of Escanaban economy, worth a remarkable 2,844 trillion Rois a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 157,548 Rois, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.
Coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, cane fights are a common sight in nursing homes, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, and the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms. Crime is totally unknown. United Counties of Escanaba's national animal is the snowy owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
