Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Great and Bestestest Duchy of Escyland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Great Duke Ulol with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.563 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 98.8%.

The thriving Escylandian economy, worth a remarkable 7,418 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 314,844 Muffins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,150,990 per year while the poor average 61,089, a ratio of 18.8 to 1.

Once-popular honeymoon destinations have become ghosts towns due to a lack of visitors, politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, anyone dissenting from the state ideology is declared "mentally ill" and whisked away in a straitjacket, and large areas of Escyland are not accessible by the public. 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 28,479th in the world for Most Extreme, scoring 25 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
