The Absolute Mandated Superstate of Exsorcial is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Infinite Father with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.471 billion Exsorcialians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Syoneson. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Exsorcialian economy, worth a remarkable 1,167 trillion Ration Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, extremely specialized black market in Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 156,222 Ration Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 604,119 per year while the poor average 27,721, a ratio of 21.8 to 1.

It is illegal to carry an umbrella when the official weather forecast predicts a sunny day, teen boys and girls find stick-figure-aided lectures on their comradestruation emphasises socialist unity more than biology, babysitters are a thing of the past, and the seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Exsorcial's national animal is the State Dissident, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mandated Following of the State.

Exsorcial is ranked 18,590th in the world and 57th in The Invaders for Most Authoritarian, with 2,586.64 milliStalins.
