The Hungarian boi of Encurage is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Eternal Emperor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.916 billion Encurageans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Malon. The average income tax rate is 66.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Encuragean economy, worth 379 trillion Mosths a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 130,287 Mosths, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cremation is compulsory for the deceased, blind dates tend to result in bruised shins, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Encurage's national animal is the Great White Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Encurage is ranked 203,286th in the world and 5,923rd in the Rejected Realms for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -45.59 on the Hayek Index.
