Regional Influence: Negotiator
The Grandes' Duchy of Giscuambourg is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by HRH the Grande Duke Seymour X with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working population of 10.13 billion Giscuambourgers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Giscuambourg. The average income tax rate is 80%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
The art of conversation has been rediscovered, invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, HRH the Grande Duke Seymour X is worshipped as a god, and consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Giscuambourg's national animal is the Giscuambourger Weasel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Giscuambourger Dollar.
