OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Great and Bestestest Duchy of Escyland is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Great Duke Ulol with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 21.358 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Escylonia. The average income tax rate is 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Arms Manufacturing.

The nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, main battle tanks stalk the woods of Escyland in search of Blast ended Screwts, citizens select which government department gets their income tax Muffins each year, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Escyland's national animal is the Blast ended Screwt, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Ulnogstic, and its currency is the Muffin.

Escyland is ranked 1st in The Hidden Mountains and 400th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 546.8 Insults Per Minute (net).
