The Principality of Giscuambourg is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by HRH Prince Seymour XI with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 13.632 billion Giscuams are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Giscuambourg. The average income tax rate is 44.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient giscuam economy, worth a remarkable 1,970 trillion Giscuam Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 144,566 Giscuam Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.
Skateparks can be found in every city, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, major cities are suffering under water rationing, and even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Giscuambourg's national animal is the Giscuam Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
