The Sparkly Mermaid of Escade is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sofia Escade with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.301 billion Escadians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Empyreal City. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Escadean economy, worth a remarkable 1,275 trillion Nectars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. Average income is an impressive 123,826 Nectars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children wondering what happens to pets after they die are shown where the compost heap is, lobster tastes best when it is red, an alabaster statue of an ancient cat-deity takes pride of place in the centre of Empyreal City, and every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Escade's national animal is the Hummingbird, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Escade is ranked 6,772nd in the world and 164th in The East Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 132 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
