The Many Itinerant Starships of Escalan Corps-Star Island is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Executive Officer Lanáltiran Enguerrade with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.569 billion Isladestelidni hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Teniana. The average income tax rate is 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology industries.

All new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers, teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill, the Escalan Corps-Star Island Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, and young people crowd pizza parlors praying to 'The Supreme Pizza, His Immaculate Munchiness'. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Escalan Corps-Star Island's national animal is the wyralkin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Aláranid Deism, and its currency is the decunia.

Escalan Corps-Star Island is ranked 1st in Alaran peri quan preciad and 3,540th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 11 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
