The Empire of -Confusionland- is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its closed borders, punitive income tax rates, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.506 billion Confusionlandians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Industry, although Defense, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cluelessburg. The average income tax rate is 60.4%.

The frighteningly efficient -Confusionland-ian economy, worth 270 trillion Huhs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 107,881 Huhs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Adult magazines are having a sales resurgence as internet anonymity disappears, children who can't memorize their multiplication tables are sent to the mines, the skeletons of lost tourists litter the ground of the Great -Confusionland-ian Desert, and roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. -Confusionland-'s national animal is the Platypus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

-Confusionland- is ranked 22,395th in the world and 1st in The West Pole for Most Developed, scoring 80.81 on the Human Development Index.
