OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Grandes' Duchy of Giscuambourg is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by HRH the Grande Duke Seymour X with an even hand, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working population of 9.23 billion Giscuambourgers enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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 77%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Discarded pennies litter the streets, the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, citizens are more concerned about voting for Big Brother contestants than politicians, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. 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.

Giscuambourg is ranked 18th in Gay and 6,122nd in the world for Best Weather, with 150 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
