The Commonwealth of United Counties of Escanaba is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by J R R Tolkien with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 19.958 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 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient United Counties of Escanaban economy, worth a remarkable 3,164 trillion Rois a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 158,570 Rois, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events, truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, international humanitarian organisations are applauding the government for ending the death penalty, and roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it. 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 22,972nd in the world and 8th in Shinka for Most Patriotic, with 29.37 Flags saluted per person per day.
