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 notable for its soft-spoken computers, state-planned economy, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 14.909 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, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. 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 5,455 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 365,916 Esardoes, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

Drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, the newly revamped army is so eager for action that it has trouble keeping the peace, all government communication requires the imprimatur of the Truth Police, and muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions. 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 137,139th in the world and 20th in Ankh Mauta for Most Income Equality, scoring 12.58 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
