The United States of Escalver is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by PM - Christy Adelaide with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.046 billion Escalian have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marsden. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Escalverian economy, worth 89.3 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 85,377 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military funding has been stripped back, anti-government web sites are springing up, the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, and there is something rotten in the state of Escalver. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Escalver's national animal is the Red Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Escalver is ranked 194,340th in the world and 699th in Europe for Most Primitive, scoring -100.5 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
