The Democratie reelle of Gaiah is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Krishnamurti with an even hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 26.324 billion Gaiahians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Environment, with Education and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Defense and Industry are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paris. The average income tax rate is 89.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but stagnant Gaiahian economy, worth 347 trillion Euros a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 13,210 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, the government is attempting to revitalize a gutted private sector, and citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Gaiah's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
