New Excalibus

Population7.73 billion

Capitalthe Park


The Rescue Ranger of New Excalibus is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Dale with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.73 billion Excalia enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Park. The average income tax rate is 94.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Excalian economy, worth a remarkable 1,409 trillion acorns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 182,320 acorns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, unemployed judges can be found squatting in abandoned courthouses, blue sky thinkers are reminded that the firmament is actually more of a grey-ish colour, and violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner. Crime is totally unknown. New Excalibus's national animal is the chipmunk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Rangerism.

New Excalibus is ranked 2,964th in the world and 4th in Karma for Most Cultured, scoring 198 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
