The Holy Republic of Gebidia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Marcus Oritas with a fair hand, and notable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.964 billion Gebidians 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Social Welfare and Religion & Spirituality are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arvoria. The average income tax rate is 79%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, Gebidia's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, the welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists, and pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government. Crime is totally unknown. Gebidia's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, its national religion is Roman Catholicism, and its currency is the Denalm.
