The Sparkly Mermaid of Escade is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Sofia Escade with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, state-planned economy, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.071 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 96.2%.
The frighteningly efficient Escadean economy, worth a remarkable 1,111 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 and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 122,557 Nectars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, and there have been reports of people marrying housepets. 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.
