Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Great and Bestestest Duchy of Escyland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Great Duke Ulol with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, ban on automobiles, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 25.571 billion Escylonians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Escylonia. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The powerhouse Escylandian economy, worth a remarkable 9,173 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 358,730 Muffins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,155,654 per year while the poor average 84,278, a ratio of 13.7 to 1.

The people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, corporate innovation has effectively ended since ideas can no longer be owned, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, and the tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ulnogstic.

Escyland is ranked 832nd in the world and 1st in The Hidden Mountains for Largest Governments, scoring 57.32 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
