The Great and Bestestest Duchy of Escyland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Great Duke Ulol with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 21.864 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 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Arms Manufacturing.

Shaken martini sales have soared in nations surrounding Escyland, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, and politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing. 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 2,505th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 307 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
