The Commonwealth of United Counties of Escanaba is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by J R R Tolkien with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 7.793 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 45.9%.
The frighteningly efficient United Counties of Escanaban economy, worth 938 trillion Rois a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration.

Religious education is a new government priority, legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass, listless juries are assembled for the simplest of court cases, and EpiPen sales have skyrocketed.
