Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Garyana is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Marshal Gary Burns with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, hatred of cheese, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.593 billion Garyanese are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Joseph. The average income tax rate is 87.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Garyanese economy, worth a remarkable 1,226 trillion Garyana Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Arms Manufacturing industry. Average income is 97,393 Garyana Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet, students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations, unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount Saint Joseph make great practice for foreign snipers, and oddly patriotic flash mobs spontaneously sing the national anthem. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Garyana's national animal is the gold tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Garyana is ranked 79,643rd in the world and 1,295th in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 254 billion Standard Monetary Units.
