Featured nation December 2019: Eulycea

The Kingdom of


"Vive Carolus Rex!"

National Animal: lion

Currency: libra

As our final featured nation for 2019, the honour is passed onto Eulycea. He joined us in August and pronto graduated from the Academy with LinkThe Wolf in President's Clothing. A lovely and exciting read! Within our region, Eulycea is famous for its Primitiveness (2nd), Authoritarianism (2nd), Ignorance (3rd) and Social Conservatism (6th). In essence, this is the complete opposite of how we know Eulycea-the-person. We're happy to have you here and hope for many more years.

The Kingdom of Eulycea is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.006 billion Eulyceans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brisa. The average income tax rate is 55.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Eulycean economy, worth 50.6 trillion libras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 50,290 libras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews, the government-run newspapers insist that everything is fine, illegal book-trafficking rings dominate the black market, and people invite random old men into their homes to play with their kids. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eulycea's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
