The Many Itinerant Starships of Escalan Corps-Star Island is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Executive Officer Lanáltiran Enguerrade with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.416 billion, 833 million of whom are zombies, 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 97%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology industries.

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.
