The Sparkly Mermaid of Escade is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sofia Escade with a fair hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.339 billion Escadians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Empyreal City. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.
The frighteningly efficient Escadean economy, worth a remarkable 1,281 trillion Nectars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. Average income is an impressive 123,960 Nectars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, the nation doesn't need to go to war in order to acquire new territory, politicians that report exaggerated crowd sizes for their speeches are dismissed for being delusional, and young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Escade's national animal is the Hummingbird, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
