The Absolute Mandated Superstate of Exsorcial is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Infinite Father with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, otherworldly petting zoo, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.674 billion Exsorcialians 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."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Syoneson. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Exsorcialian economy, worth a remarkable 1,330 trillion Ration Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, extremely specialized black market in Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 153,339 Ration Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Crocodile roadkill is smeared across the asphalt of the new Formula One track, they who do not work shall not eat, withdrawal of support for drug addicts is leaving many with cold sweats, and citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Exsorcial's national animal is the Pelican, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Mandated Worship of the State.

Exsorcial is ranked 27,527th in the world and 43rd in The Free Nations Region for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 278,761 Standard Monetary Units.
