The Empire of Gautania is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Queen PT Growbhora with an even hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 914 million Gautanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fernweh. The average income tax rate is 56.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Gautanian economy, worth 35.9 trillion crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 39,225 crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients, and Queen PT Growbhora has just been declared ruler of Gautania in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gautania's national animal is the Mute swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gautania is ranked 152,970th in the world and 6,703rd in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 25.75 on the Rand Index.
