Beth Gellert

Population32.063 billion



The Gymanwlad Sosialaidd of Beth Gellert is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 32.063 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 receive no funds. 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 9,672 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 301,684 gwarthegions, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Toxic smog is dismissed as the populace just "letting off steam", the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, workers tend to schedule naps during all-hands meetings, and toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters. 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 157,272nd in the world and 16th in A Modern World for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 14.27 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
