Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Government of Gasoline is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Exxon Baytown Refinery Rubber Unit with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, ritual sacrifices, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.938 billion Hydroblasters are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Spirituality, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pasadena Texas. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.1%.

The powerhouse Gasolinean economy, worth 251 trillion Line Moles a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 63,840 Line Moles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 225,976 per year while the poor average 13,022, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Parents who refuse to vaccinate their children are given a short jail sentence, immigrants are asked to leave their cultural traditions and pride at the border, an increasingly villainous series of sports coaches are demanding the national mascot's true identity, and harassment has been stamped out under the high-heeled jackboots of a matriarchy. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Gasoline's national animal is the Operator, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Peakload.

Gasoline is ranked 14th in San Francisco and 23,167th in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 3 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
