Regional Influence: Eminence Grise
Location: The Supreme Union
The United Kingdom of GTCJ is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by HM King Gregorius I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical population of 7.341 billion Gileadans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although Religion & Spirituality and Defence are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of HeavenGate. The average income tax rate is 94%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.
Surveillance cameras are banned, torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, CDs are regularly copy-protected, and private law firms are unheard of. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. GTCJ's national animal is the Dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Biblonian Christianity, and its currency is the Quopes.
