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 punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.582 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.

Children are raised bilingual from an early age, re-education centers are being added to most prisons, the government pours millions of decunias into rehabilitation programs annually, and the nation's Medal of Honour can be found as a free toy in breakfast cereal. 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 16th in Alaran peri quan preciad and 93,755th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -2 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
