The Completely Ridiculous Nation of Estranged Confusion is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by That One Guy with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, avant-garde cinema, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 9.493 billion Estranged Confusionians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Impending Insanity. The average income tax rate is 89.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Estranged Confusionian economy, worth a remarkable 1,400 trillion Cells a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 147,572 Cells, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, almost every singles' party has a clergy and courtesans theme, and prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Estranged Confusion's national animal is the strange thing, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Confusion.

Estranged Confusion is ranked 35,922nd in the world and 3rd in Agora for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,476.19 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
