Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Gymanwlad Sosialaidd of Beth Gellert is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its digital currency, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 30.586 billion Beddgelens are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Social Policy, Defense, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Portmeirion. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Beddgelen economy, worth a remarkable 9,212 trillion gwarthegions a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 301,202 gwarthegions, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Homophobia is off the menu, the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet, bike rage is all the rage, and school children asked "what is two times two?" are likely to form a symposium to discuss how different answers make them feel. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Beth Gellert's national animal is the kan-gel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Beth Gellert is ranked 15,970th in the world and 4th in A Modern World for Most Income Equality, scoring 75.17 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
