Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Great and Bestestest Duchy of Escyland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Great Duke Ulol with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, punitive income tax rates, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 25.74 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 Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Escylonia. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The powerhouse Escylandian economy, worth a remarkable 9,254 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 359,533 Muffins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,029,364 per year while the poor average 99,969, a ratio of 10.3 to 1.

A wide-ranging purge of leading officials and family members is being carried out by The Great Duke Ulol, streaming video is considered to be a myth by most citizens, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, and the military is blowing up any threat to employment within the nation. 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 20,290th in the world and 1st in The Hidden Mountains for Most Authoritarian, with 1.44 Stalins.
