The Nightmarish Lands of Excaliba is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by The Hierophant with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.353 billion Excalibans 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 enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Calborea. The average income tax rate is 70.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Excaliban economy, worth 146 trillion Donnals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 27,334 Donnals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Excaliba Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, rumor has it that The Hierophant has won three lotteries in a row, and no one is worried about government policies any more. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Excaliba's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Bucenism.

Excaliba is ranked 212,036th in the world and 320th in Karma for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.33 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
