Beth Gellert

Population35.681 billion



The Gymanwlad Sosialaidd of Beth Gellert is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 35.681 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 an astonishing 10,789 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 302,389 gwarthegions, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Saying "don't do anything that Leader wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, the carbon footprint falls along with the human footprint during war, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. 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 39,054th in the world and 8th in A Modern World for Highest Drug Use, scoring 87.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
