“If You Don't Want Trouble, Leave Us Alone”

Regional Influence: Auxiliary
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 sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.141 billion Escanabans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Defence, and Public Transport. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great Bend. The average income tax rate is 39%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Business is adjusting to new gender equality policies in the workplace, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, surveillance cameras are banned, and anti-government web sites are springing up. 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, and its currency is the Roi.
