The Free Federation of Escapitania is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President-Prime Minister with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 6.432 billion Escapitanians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Freedomia Capital City. The average income tax rate is 75.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Escapitanian economy, worth 899 trillion marks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 139,840 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The NHS is snowed under by requests for crisper ciabatta and tenderer tagliatelle, religious households enthusiastically use whips in private, the nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere, and politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Escapitania's national animal is the Bald eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Escapitania is ranked 237,701st in the world and 5,883rd in the West Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 1.71 Obesity Rate.
