Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Slowley Improving Nation of Glugerstut is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by President Briggs with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.636 billion Glugerstutians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Volheigmer. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Glugerstutian economy, worth 578 trillion Euros a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 87,163 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Cities are engulfed by smog, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, soldiers are equipped with multi-million Euro battlesuits, and the Glugerstut Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Glugerstut's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

Glugerstut is ranked 3rd in Carnival of Souls and 80,893rd in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -60 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
