OverviewDispatchesPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Parliamentary Democracy of Engelfeld is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Michael Foot with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.339 billion Engelfeldians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bracknell. The average income tax rate is 87.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Engelfeldian economy, worth 235 trillion Engelfeldian Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is 70,594 Engelfeldian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sales of trenchcoats are on the rise, veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, it is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, and workers for the environmental protection agency are patted down for tartar sauce every morning. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Engelfeld's national animal is the Norfolk Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Engelism.

Engelfeld is ranked 13,780th in the world and 1st in Urana Firma for Most Income Equality, scoring 86.97 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
