The Dominion of Eskaton is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Gomez Addams with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 976 million Eskatonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Morticia Morgana -MoMo-. The average income tax rate is 44.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Eskatonian economy, worth 72.5 trillion Tala a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 74,244 Tala, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Carpet bombing has decimated Brasilistan's landscape and population, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, frat-house partying has become the national pastime, and people have become comfortably numb. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eskaton's national animal is the Flying Donkey, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Eskaton is ranked 25,678th in the world and 585th in the West Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 62,958.22 Standard Monetary Units.
