The Queendom of Psylands is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 411 million Psylandsians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 37.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Psylandsian economy, worth 8.07 trillion Evols 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, fairly diversified black market in Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 19,638 Evols, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary, nude art is becoming wildly popular, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, and explosive diarrhoea is not just a colorful phrase. Crime is totally unknown. Psylands's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Psylands is ranked 196,571st in the world and 7,673rd in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -92.62 on the Rand Index.
