The Principality of Giscuambourg is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by HRH Prince Seymour XI with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 12.625 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 41.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient giscuam economy, worth a remarkable 1,845 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 146,170 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. Giscuambourg's national animal is the Giscuam Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
