Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Principality of Giscuambourg is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by HRH Prince Seymour XI with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, unlimited-speed roads, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 10.916 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 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 1,555 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.

Giscuambourg is ranked 189th in Gay and 134,730th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -35 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
