Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grand National Republic of Gafudland is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Chancellor Gordon Adolf Germain with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.801 billion Gafudlanders are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aldherst. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.9%.

The powerhouse Gafudlandish economy, worth 428 trillion Zadollrus a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 89,323 Zadollrus, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

Toxic smog is dismissed as the populace just "letting off steam", penal labor is a de facto death sentence, fast-food chefs regularly win Health Innovation Awards for spitting on burgers, and fine dining is just too fine for most of the populace. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gafudland's national animal is the Gafudlandish Bull, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Germanism.

Gafudland is ranked 36,802nd in the world and 3rd in Terra Luminous for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3,737.71 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
