Gamla Uppsala

Population6.407 billion

LeaderAleksandr Klërk


The Free Land of Gamla Uppsala is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Aleksandr Klërk with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.407 billion Gamla Uppsalans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Älvstad. The average income tax rate is 80.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Gamla Uppsalan economy, worth 745 trillion äpples a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 116,290 äpples, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here, with increasingly clear skies nobody seems to mind the electricity bill going through the roof, banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, and the fines for getting caught with the wrong recipe book can force Gamla Uppsalans into bankruptcy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gamla Uppsala's national animal is the Kingfisher, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Gamla Uppsala is ranked 10,976th in the world and 542nd in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 109 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
