The Párnalen-Ístmenid of Escalan Corps-Star Island is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Executive Officer Lanáltiran Enguer'ad with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, otherworldly petting zoo, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 19.625 billion Isladestelidni hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Teniana. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Isladestelid economy, worth a remarkable 8,389 trillion disékatads a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 427,508 disékatads, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Executive Officer Lanáltiran Enguer'ad's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success, parents are always up to speed on the latest childcare techniques, rumor has it that Executive Officer Lanáltiran Enguer'ad has won three lotteries in a row, and military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Escalan Corps-Star Island's national animal is the yralken, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Kamsákisad.

Escalan Corps-Star Island is ranked 245,265th in the world and 16th in Ordis for Lowest Crime Rates, with 2.61 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
