Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Humanistic Dictatorship of Gages Icelandic Army is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Philosophy Pharaoh Voss with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.377 billion GIAns are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shrimp City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.9%.

The frighteningly efficient GIAnian economy, worth 618 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 183,007 Mantis Monies, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 609,113 per year while the poor average 40,971, a ratio of 14.9 to 1.

Tourist operators promise visitors tours of live burning shipwrecks and plane crash sites, historic buildings are being demolished to allow for road-widening in the city centre, political activists are routinely executed, and the public are free to vote for whomever the government wants in office. 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 24,089th in the world and 17th in Philosophy 115 for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,779.62 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
