Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

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 public floggings, avowedly heterosexual populace, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 22.483 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, 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 97.4%.

The strong Escylandian economy, worth a remarkable 5,879 trillion Muffins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 261,501 Muffins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 833,070 per year while the poor average 62,448, a ratio of 13.3 to 1.

Schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, believers must practice religion behind church doors lest the government smite them with a mighty fine, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, and homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ulnogstic.

Escyland is ranked 1st in The Hidden Mountains and 6,964th in the world for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
