The United Commonwealth of New Excalibus is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King Edward I with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 1.119 billion Excalians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Hemlock. The average income tax rate is 72.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Excalian economy, worth 130 trillion Excalian Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 116,967 Excalian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Brave curators do battle with disorganised government libraries, artists attempt to convince the Hardship Fund that their unmade bed is a masterpiece, King Edward I tells rebellious ministers to "drop and give me twenty", and urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines. Crime is totally unknown. New Excalibus's national animal is the Excalian Greyhound, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

New Excalibus is ranked 8,836th in the world and 1st in Hegiroth for Most Developed, scoring 87.76 on the Human Development Index.
