The Commonwealth of United Counties of Escanaba is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by J R R Tolkien with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 18.363 billion Escanabans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great Bend. The average income tax rate is 86.9%.

The frighteningly efficient United Counties of Escanaban economy, worth a remarkable 2,858 trillion Rois a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 155,647 Rois, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and prison visits increase substantially during election years. Crime is totally unknown. United Counties of Escanaba's national animal is the snowy owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

United Counties of Escanaba is ranked 124,898th in the world and 105th in Shinka for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 277.6 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
