The Great and Bestestest Duchy of Escyland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Great Duke Ulol with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 22.253 billion Escylonians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Escylonia. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The enormous but inefficient Escylandian economy, worth a remarkable 4,352 trillion Muffins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 195,582 Muffins, with the richest citizens earning 9.7 times as much as the poorest.

Police officers have nearly cracked a major underage astronomy syndicate, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and heavy industry grinds to a halt as new equipment must be biked in. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Escyland's national animal is the Blast ended Screwt, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ulnogstic.

Escyland is ranked 1st in The Hidden Mountains and 1,195th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,751.1 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
