Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Libertarian Dictatorship of Gages Icelandic Army is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Philosophy Pharaoh Voss with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.989 billion GIAns enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shrimp City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.4%.

The frighteningly efficient GIAnian economy, worth 708 trillion Mantis Monies a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 177,693 Mantis Monies, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 530,699 per year while the poor average 46,559, a ratio of 11.4 to 1.

Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, condemned prisoners spend hours a day sitting in lotus position looking perplexed, politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes, and the nation is cleaning up after a national night of celebration left most people with headaches and dim memories (Gages Icelandic Army has found 4 easter eggs). Crime is totally unknown. Gages Icelandic Army's national animal is the Mantis Shrimp, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Renaissance Humanism.

Gages Icelandic Army is ranked 157,826th in the world and 4,916th in Osiris for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -11.4 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
