The Monastic Technocracy of Expendia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Council of Abbots with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, public floggings, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.49 billion Expendables 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 enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Necropolis of Saints. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Expendable economy, worth an astonishing 10,622 trillion Souls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 401,010 Souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's best not to ask what goes into The Necropolis Of Saints Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices, this year's hottest seller is plenary indulgence, first-time moms are expected to be experienced parents from day one, and tourists flock to see the giant stone carvings of historical leaders at Mount Rushless. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Expendia's national animal is the Human Corpse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Expendablism.

Expendia is ranked 235,628th in the world and 7,592nd in Osiris for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -16.73 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
