OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The South Pacific Consortium of Gauthier is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Johnson with an iron fist, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 23.941 billion Gauthierians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

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.

The new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, all footpaths have tollbooths, and Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme. 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 6th in the South Pacific and 357th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 358 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
