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 keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.356 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.

Escalan Corps-Star Island is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, and the newspaper industry is subsidised by the government in order to keep it afloat. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. 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 4th in Alaran peri quan preciad and 23,193rd in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 87 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
