The Commonwealth of United Counties of Escanaba is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by J R R Tolkien with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 21.96 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 92.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient United Counties of Escanaban economy, worth a remarkable 3,592 trillion Rois a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 163,579 Rois, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Nuclear reactors are held together with party string and Hubba Bubba, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, nighttime sightings of raccoons sporting Circle-A patches and bandanna masks are on the rise, and abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals. 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 18,020th in the world and 5th in Shinka for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
