The Great and Bestestest Duchy of Escyland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Great Duke Ulol with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 20.574 billion 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."

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.

Drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government, soldiers are equipped with multi-million Muffin battlesuits, Ollie the Oiled Seal welcomes throngs of tourists to the newly opened Oil Oasis Water Park, and citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering'. 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 2,145th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 12 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
