The Hungarian boi of Encurage is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Eternal Emperor with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.29 billion Encurageans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Malon. The average income tax rate is 67.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Encuragean economy, worth 290 trillion Mosths 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 a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. 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 impressive 126,854 Mosths, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, Eternal Emperor is the self-declared God of all Encurage, military instructors tire of being asked for another bedtime story by seven-year-old conscripts, and the children of Encurage are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Encurage's national animal is the Great White Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Emperorism.

Encurage is ranked 192,504th in the world and 4,689th in the Rejected Realms for Least Corrupt Governments, with 76.31 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
