The Empire of -Confusionland- is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its enslaved workforce, digital currency, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 989 million 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 receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cluelessburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.3%.

The frighteningly efficient -Confusionland-ian economy, worth 114 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 116,154 Huhs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 794,551 per year while the poor average 6,125, 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 39,398th in the world and 4th in The West Pole for Most Extreme, scoring 29.39 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
