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 unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 21.109 billion Escylonians 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 Escylonia. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Arms Manufacturing.

The nation's train stations are widely considered to be the ugliest in The Hidden Mountains, believers must practice religion behind church doors lest the government smite them with a mighty fine, the nation's soldiers are considered the best-dressed in The Hidden Mountains, and citizens must have a license to operate a computer. 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 112,031st in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -117 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
