Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Great and Bestestest Duchy of Escyland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Great Duke Ulol with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, avant-garde cinema, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 27.706 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 Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Escylonia. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The enormous but inefficient Escylandian economy, worth a remarkable 7,151 trillion Muffins a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 258,104 Muffins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government snoops on private internet connections, The Great Duke Ulol's new android secretary is the latest media darling, serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, and criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program. 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 13,957th in the world and 2nd in The Hidden Mountains for Most Authoritarian, with 1.86 Stalins.
