The Empire of -Confusionland- is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.001 billion Confusionlandians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Industry, with Defense, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cluelessburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.1%.

The frighteningly efficient -Confusionland-ian economy, worth 116 trillion Huhs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 116,064 Huhs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 793,939 per year while the poor average 6,120, a ratio of 129 to 1.

Adult magazines are having a sales resurgence as internet anonymity disappears, children who can't memorize their multiplication tables are sent to the mines, the skeletons of lost tourists litter the ground of the Great -Confusionland-ian Desert, and roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. -Confusionland-'s national animal is the Platypus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

-Confusionland- is ranked 99,205th in the world and 10th in The West Pole for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 1,429.19 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
