The Holy Empire of Excalbia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor David IV with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 21.221 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, with Defense, Law & Order, and Public Transport also on the agenda, 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 5.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Excalbian economy, worth a remarkable 3,716 trillion Imperial Sovs a year, is broadly diversified and dominated 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 175,113 Imperial Sovs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, every workday begins with group therapy, and many friends and relatives of Emperor David IV have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations. 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 138,373rd in the world and 17th in Western Atlantic for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -4.83 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
