The Kingdom of Englar Empire is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by John Blake with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, flagrant waste-dumping, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 25.295 billion Englarians 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 Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lungar. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.7%.

The powerhouse Englarian economy, worth a remarkable 2,386 trillion crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 94,365 crowns, with the richest citizens earning 8.8 times as much as the poorest.

The poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills, Englarian athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, and lending money has become a major liability. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Englar Empire's national animal is the fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Church of Englar.

Englar Empire is ranked 4,636th in the world and 172nd in Osiris for Highest Economic Output, with 2,386 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
