The Principality of Giscuambourg is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by HRH Prince Seymour XI with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, strictly enforced bedtime, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 11.103 billion Giscuams are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The relatively small, 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 40.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming giscuam economy, worth a remarkable 1,582 trillion Giscuam Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 142,538 Giscuam Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
Extraordinary tribunals try accused financials criminals, highschool principals regularly send armed truancy patrols to drag problem students to school, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, and students cut up leftover Giscuam Dollars during Arts and Crafts. Crime is totally unknown. Giscuambourg's national animal is the Giscuam Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
