The Kingdom of Escevola is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by High King Cayo Mucio Escevola the Third with an iron fist, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, zero percent divorce rate, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 6.148 billion Escians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beatrix. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Escevolan economy, worth 890 trillion reais a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 144,883 reais, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Pharmacists increasingly claim they are morally obligated to take long lunches, workers tend to schedule naps during all-hands meetings, pros are the new cons, and school lockers are filled with fancy underwear. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Escevola's national animal is the sabertooth tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholic.

Escevola is ranked 182,708th in the world and 7,315th in the South Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -8.37 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
