Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

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 enslaved workforce, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 25.919 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 97.8%.

The thriving Escylandian economy, worth a remarkable 9,225 trillion Muffins a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 355,938 Muffins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,221,143 per year while the poor average 76,146, a ratio of 16.0 to 1.

Summer science camps are regularly raided by narcotics police, contestants on Escyland's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent, tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, and the unemployed are quite literally sold to the highest bidder. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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 32nd in the world and 1st in The Hidden Mountains for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 37,288.38 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
