The Free Land of Gamla Uppsala is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Aleksandr Klërk with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.519 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 77.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Gamla Uppsalan economy, worth 649 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 117,743 äpples, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
The government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals, and nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers. 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.
