The Free Land of Gamla Uppsala is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Aleksandr Klërk with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.165 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Älvstad. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Gamla Uppsalan economy, worth 614 trillion äpples a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,058 äpples, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Fruit market traders let their stock spoil rather than reduce their prices at the day's end, the number of deaths due to poor fungus identification is mushrooming, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, and the 'Museum Of Stuff We Stole' is a tourist favourite. 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 10,989th in the world and 518th in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 78.57 Quips Per Hour.
