Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The South Pacific Consortium of Gauthier is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Newberry with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 25.797 billion Gauthieris are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The tiny, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Petra. The average income tax rate is 3.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gauthieri economy, worth a remarkable 3,737 trillion Credits a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 144,884 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, and minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home. Crime is totally unknown. Gauthier's national animal is the Vigilance Goshawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Gauthier is ranked 46th in the South Pacific and 1,518th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 5 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
