The Hungarian boi of Encurage is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Eternal Emperor with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.283 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, although Education, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, 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 289 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 104,184th in the world and 2,435th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 1,252.09 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
