The Fallen Kingdom of Great Excalibus is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King Edward I with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, ban on automobiles, and enforced nudity. The cynical population of 1.823 billion Excalians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hemlock. The average income tax rate is 9.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Great Excalibusian economy, worth 106 trillion Excalics a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,470 Excalics, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, and King Edward I has been self-declared as the Most Supreme Magnificent Overlord of Everything You Ever Saw. Crime is well under control. Great Excalibus's national animal is the Excalian Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Great Excalibus is ranked 50,187th in the world and 2nd in Aramos for Most Authoritarian, with 981.36 milliStalins.
