The Principality of Giscuambourg is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by HRH Prince Seymour XI with an iron fist, and remarkable for its national health service, strictly enforced bedtime, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 11.628 billion Giscuams are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.
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 39.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming giscuam economy, worth a remarkable 1,689 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 145,274 Giscuam Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.
The newspaper industry is subsidised by the government in order to keep it afloat, wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct, the government is engaging in an agricultural trade war with Maxtopia, and customs turn away those considered to have an unfavourable ethnicity. Crime is totally unknown. Giscuambourg's national animal is the Giscuam Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
