Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Landsraad Hegemony of G-Tech Corporation is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Hegemon Winthrop Eddleton the Younger with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, strictly enforced bedtime, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 15.415 billion Landsers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spire of Eternity. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Hegemonic economy, worth a remarkable 5,582 trillion Esardoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 362,138 Esardoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Police officers have been re-kitted with designer uniforms and gold plated handcuffs, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, and police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races. Crime is totally unknown. G-Tech Corporation's national animal is the Elvardian Seerial, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

G-Tech Corporation is ranked 143,295th in the world and 24th in Ankh Mauta for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.72 Crimes Per Hour.
