The Great and Bestestest Duchy of Escyland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Great Duke Ulol with an iron fist, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 21.146 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."

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 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Arms Manufacturing.

Foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest, and businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up. 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 22,457th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 1.57 Stalins.
