The Federation of Escapitania is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Mr GoldenHelmet with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The compassionate population of 2.277 billion Escapitanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Freedomia Capital City. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Escapitanian economy, worth 325 trillion marks a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 142,757 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lifeguards are more concerned with watching for sharks than struggling swimmers, abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Escapitania's national animal is the Bald eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheisim.

Escapitania is ranked 100,517th in the world and 3,698th in the West Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 49.03 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
