The Iradialad Iterind of Escalan Corps-Star Island is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Executive Officer Lanáltiran Enguerrade with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.445 billion Isladestelidni hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Teniana. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Isladestelid economy, worth a remarkable 5,180 trillion decunias a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 416,283 decunias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, nude art is becoming wildly popular, government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support', and a death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Escalan Corps-Star Island's national animal is the wyralkin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Aláranid Deism.

Escalan Corps-Star Island is ranked 8,810th in the world and 4th in Ordis for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 6,574.55 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
