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 national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.494 billion, 19 million of whom are zombies, 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, pro-business 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of United Counties of Escanaba's radio stations, small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass. 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.

United Counties of Escanaba is ranked 97,231st in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -5 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

United Counties of Escanaba is currently researching a cure.
