The Kingdom of Escevola is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by High King Cayo Mucio Escevola the Third with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 6.617 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 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Escevolan economy, worth 934 trillion reais a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,220 reais, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Snapgram channel "Embarrassing Baby High King Cayo Mucio Escevola The Third Pics" has made High King Cayo Mucio Escevola the Third's mom a celebrity, tourists call Escevolan beach towns "the fine coastline", royal mothers accustomed to baby-talk assure the troops "we gweatly wespect your service; yes, we do", and people often feel unbalanced by their daily commute. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 978th in the world and 95th in the South Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 87,587 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
