The Free Land of Gamla Uppsala is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Aleksandr Klërk with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.702 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, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Älvstad. The average income tax rate is 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Gamla Uppsalan economy, worth 894 trillion äpples a year, is quite specialized and 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 116,114 äpples, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
A new religious movement claims that people's souls are stored in phosphorous, the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, and every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains. 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.
