Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Great and Bestestest Duchy of Escyland is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Great Duke Ulol with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 27.2 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Escylonia. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The powerhouse Escylandian economy, worth an astonishing 10,592 trillion Muffins a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 389,441 Muffins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,494,473 per year while the poor average 69,966, a ratio of 21.4 to 1.

The nation's reinforced coffee tables are constructed to survive an atomic blast, a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, new cases of Asbestosis are cropping up as quickly as hospitals can deal with them, and a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Escyland's national animal is the Blast ended Screwt, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ulnogstic.

Escyland is ranked 509th in the world and 1st in The Hidden Mountains for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 12,149.14 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
