The Commonwealth of United Counties of Escanaba is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by J R R Tolkien with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, devotion to social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 9.041 billion Escanabans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great Bend. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.3%.
The frighteningly efficient United Counties of Escanaban economy, worth a remarkable 1,189 trillion Rois a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 131,567 Rois, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 408,201 per year while the poor average 32,646, a ratio of 12.5 to 1.
The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', and jobs opportunities abound in the Hole Recycling industry. Crime is totally unknown. United Counties of Escanaba's national animal is the snowy owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
