The Kingdom of Escevola is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by High King Cayo Mucio Escevola the Third with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.714 billion Escians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beatrix. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Escevolan economy, worth 528 trillion reais a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 142,406 reais, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification, works of historical fiction contain a surprising lack of historical figures, it's harder to qualify for IVF than for a good university, and heirs who take too long in the bathroom are declared missing and presumed dead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Escevola's national animal is the sabertooth tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholic.

Escevola is ranked 150,946th in the world and 7,036th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -62.63 on the Hayek Index.
