Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Iradialad Iterind of Escalan Corps-Star Island is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Executive Officer Lanáltiran Enguerrade with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.383 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 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Isladestelid economy, worth a remarkable 4,590 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 403,238 decunias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Executive Officer Lanáltiran Enguerrade's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, and drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government. 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 290th in the world and 1st in Ordis for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
