Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Principality of Giscuambourg is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by HRH Prince Seymour XI with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 11.28 billion Giscuams are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

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 39.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming giscuam economy, worth a remarkable 1,623 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 143,921 Giscuam Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 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.

Giscuambourg is ranked 8th in Gay and 4,163rd in the world for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 5 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
