The Front Porch Sittin' Republic of Eskvenn is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by John Monroe with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 5.157 billion Eskvennians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Charleston. The average income tax rate is 42.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Eskvennian economy, worth 496 trillion Eskvennian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 96,209 Eskvennian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Government ministers are regularly seen in the streets confessing their sins and hammering missiles into plow-shares, a proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII', boys are forced to pair off for the school disco slow dance as the girls are all staying at home, and minstrels carrying coconut shells provide sound effects wherever their nobles wander. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eskvenn's national animal is the Dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Eskvenn is ranked 22,226th in the world and 722nd in the South Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 991.52 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
