Overview Factbook Dispatches Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Land of Gamla Uppsala is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Aleksandr Klërk with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.85 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 79.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Gamla Uppsalan economy, worth 670 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 114,642 äpples, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, and military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies. 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 5,246th in the world and 264th in The North Pacific for Best Weather, with 260 Meters Of Sunlight.
