The Commonwealth of Eskalon is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.46 billion Eskalonians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Eskalonian economy, worth 53.2 trillion Skas a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 36,471 Skas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Toilet paper is considered a non-essential item in the embargo against Brasilistan, the nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands, the government is spending more on exports to Brasilistan than it's receiving from tariffs on the imports, and Leader has just been declared ruler of Eskalon in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eskalon's national animal is the Alpacas, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Eskalon is ranked 54,528th in the world and 3,239th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.73 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
