Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The South Pacific Consortium of Gauthier is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Newberry with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 29.598 billion Gauthieris are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Petra. The average income tax rate is 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gauthieri economy, worth a remarkable 5,431 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 183,519 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Newspapers are celebrating President Newberry saving over a million cats from trees, the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, and officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gauthier's national animal is the Vigilance Goshawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Gauthier is ranked 106,919th in the world and 4,850th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 56.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
