The Great and Bestestest Duchy of Escyland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Great Duke Ulol with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 20.552 billion are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Escyland City. The average income tax rate is 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry.

Surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, government officials across Escyland are being "encouraged" to adopt Blast ended Screwts to set an example for the populace, and children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Escyland's national animal is the Blast ended Screwt, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Ulnogstic, and its currency is the Muffin.

Escyland is ranked 1st in The Hidden Mountains and 2,147th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 12 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
