The Kingdom of Eskeland is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 661 million Eskelians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, 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 Tidahamn. The average income tax rate is 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Eskelandian economy, worth 43.8 trillion Sylts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 66,191 Sylts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt, Maxtopian Grass flags adorn every college dorm room, the government pours millions of Sylts into rehabilitation programs annually, and interest in globalism never flags. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eskeland's national animal is the Eskelian Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Eskeland is ranked 227,777th in the world and 179th in Arkonos for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 44.48 Whatever.
