Escalan Corps-Star Island

Population16.336 billion

LeaderExecutive Officer Lanáltiran Enguerrade
FaithAláranid Deism


The Párnalen-Ístmenid of Escalan Corps-Star Island is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Executive Officer Lanáltiran Enguerrade with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, soft-spoken computers, and public floggings. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 16.336 billion Isladestelidni hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, 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 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Isladestelid economy, worth a remarkable 6,804 trillion decunias 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 416,521 decunias, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months, nephews and nieces of the monarch resort to begging from relatives in palace halls, autopsies often involve only cursory examination, and students consistently complain that the wi-fi ate their homework. 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 wyralkin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Aláranid Deism.

Escalan Corps-Star Island is ranked 5,207th in the world and 3rd in Ordis for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 6,978.96 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
