The People's Republic of Escanval is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its smutty television, enslaved workforce, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 406 million Escanvalians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 51.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but sluggish Escanvalian economy, worth 12.5 trillion Escans 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, Uranium Mining, and Trout Farming. 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 30,880 Escans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
Sneezing pedestrians are grabbed by alley-lurking doctors, busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets, many friends and relatives of Leader have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, and the media have begun calling the government treasury "Leader's stash". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Escanval's national animal is the Praying mantis, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
