The Holy Byzantine Empire of Eskvor is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Vandad Von Charlid with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.819 billion Arabs are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Public Transport, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Miklagard. The average income tax rate is 69.7%.

The strong Eskvorian economy, worth 884 trillion Drachmas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Retail, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 90,053 Drachmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Young men in tiny bikinis draw neither comment nor stares on the morning commute, convicted murderers are free to walk the streets provided they attend rehabilitation classes, tie-dye has been outlawed for being 'too occult', and dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Eskvor's national animal is the Djinn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodoxy.

Eskvor is ranked 138,060th in the world and 5th in The Imperium of Agia Germania for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 24.46 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
