“If You Don't Want Trouble, Leave Us Alone”
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Commonwealth of United Counties of Escanaba is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by J R R Tolkien with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.424 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.
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 37%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, '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, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. 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.
