The Sparkly Mermaid of Escade is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Sofia Escade with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, prohibition of alcohol, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.908 billion Escadians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Empyreal City. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.
The frighteningly efficient Escadean economy, worth a remarkable 1,380 trillion Nectars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 126,560 Nectars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment, tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, and the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Escade's national animal is the Hummingbird, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
