The Many Itinerant Starships of Escalan Corps-Star Island is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Executive Officer Lanáltiran Enguerrade with a fair hand, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.152 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 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology industries.

The government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces, a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, and new funding allows inner city teachers to replace school laptops almost as fast as they get stolen. 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 2nd in Alaran peri quan preciad and 4,396th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 17 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
