Gamla Uppsala

Population6.792 billion

LeaderAleksandr Klërk


The Free Land of Gamla Uppsala is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Aleksandr Klërk with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.792 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 80.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Gamla Uppsalan economy, worth 795 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 117,151 äpples, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The fines for getting caught with the wrong recipe book can force Gamla Uppsalans into bankruptcy, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, condos feature wall-mounted cages containing endangered animals, and the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments. 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 8,166th in the world and 416th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 122.53 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
