The Kingdom of Escevola is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by High King Cayo Mucio Escevola the Third with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 4.403 billion Escians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

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 70.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Escevolan economy, worth 626 trillion reais a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 142,389 reais, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, sleeping on the job is recommended, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, and the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholic.

Escevola is ranked 34,794th in the world and 1,358th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,709.03 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
