Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Great and Bestestest Duchy of Escyland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Great Duke Ulol with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, enslaved workforce, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.186 billion Escylonians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Escylonia. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The strong Escylandian economy, worth a remarkable 6,570 trillion Muffins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 283,380 Muffins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 865,670 per year while the poor average 71,902, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

The Ministry of Truthiness now manages the entire media industry, the government has awarded itself a month-long holiday to celebrate its achievements, citizens must have a license to operate a computer, and the nation is proudly the least fertile in The Hidden Mountains. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Escyland's national animal is the Blast ended Screwt, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ulnogstic.

Escyland is ranked 1st in The Hidden Mountains and 7,891st in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 326 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
