OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Kingdom of -Genovia- is a massive, devout nation, ruled by Queen Amelia II with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 4.779 billion Genovians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pyrus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Beef-Based Agriculture and Book Publishing.

-Genovia- has been greatly criticised for its isolationist policies, Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, and muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. -Genovia-'s national animal is the Genovian Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, its national religion is the Roman Catholic Church, and its currency is the Genovian schilling.

-Genovia- is ranked 37th in The Grand Imperial Alliance and 95,954th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -23 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
