Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Gymanwlad Sosialaidd of Beth Gellert is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, national health service, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 31.077 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 9,373 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 301,608 gwarthegions, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School children asked "what is two times two?" are likely to form a symposium to discuss how different answers make them feel, Leader's speeches are beloved by insomniacs, the working classes live and die on the fields of the farming communes, and UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news. 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 147,901st in the world and 16th in A Modern World for Fattest Citizens, with 4.43 Obesity Rate.
