The Holy Empire of Excalbia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor David IV with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 21.48 billion Excalbians, 19.923 billion of whom are zombies, 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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Citadel Excalbia. The average income tax rate is 6.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Excalbian economy, worth a remarkable 4,086 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 177,749 Imperial Sovs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, the government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities, and economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year. 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 197,508th in the world and 21st in Western Atlantic for Most Avoided, scoring 0.78 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
