Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The South Pacific Consortium of Gauthier is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Newberry with a fair hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 27.773 billion Gauthieris love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Petra. The average income tax rate is 49.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gauthieri economy, worth a remarkable 4,701 trillion Credits a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 169,299 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new national mascot has to be wheeled onto the field of play, debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, and the tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists. Crime is totally unknown. Gauthier's national animal is the Vigilance Goshawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Gauthier is ranked 150,976th in the world and 6,095th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 5.59 Whatever.
