OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The South Pacific Consortium of Gauthier is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Johnson with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 23.784 billion Gauthierians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Petra. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, colleges adhere to rigid ethnic quotas for admissions, citizens wishing to leave the country must surrender half their wealth to the government, and the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gauthier's national animal is the Vigilance Goshawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Credit.

Gauthier is ranked 10th in the South Pacific and 313th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 247 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
