The Holy Empire of Excalbia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Emperor David IV with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 24.113 billion Excalbians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, socially-minded, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Defense, Law & Order, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Citadel Excalbia. The average income tax rate is 6.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Excalbian economy, worth a remarkable 4,290 trillion Imperial Sovs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Pizza Delivery, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 177,937 Imperial Sovs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, the government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities, economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, and bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble. Crime is totally unknown. Excalbia's national animal is the giant flying monkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the Church of Excalbia.

Excalbia is ranked 41,875th in the world and 7th in Western Atlantic for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 3,734.07 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
