The Dominion of Eskaton is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cynical population of 483 million Eskatonians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Morticia Morgana -MoMo-. The average income tax rate is 49.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Eskatonian economy, worth 41.0 trillion Tala a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 84,921 Tala, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, the poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet, and tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury. 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 161,535th in the world and 5,197th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -3.35 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
