The Many Itinerant Starships of Escalan Corps-Star Island is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Executive Officer Lanáltiran Enguerrade with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 4.811 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 is mainly concerned with Commerce, although Education and Defence are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Teniana. The average income tax rate is 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology industries.

Businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems, Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, and billions of decunias are being blown on orbital weapons development. 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 1st in Alaran peri quan preciad and 240th in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 170 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
