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 notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 30.096 billion Gauthieris have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 70.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Gauthieri economy, worth a remarkable 5,630 trillion Credits a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 187,080 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign powers often deal with problems that Gauthier can't handle, for 25 Credits tourists can gawk at the site of national tragedy, owners of man-portable particle accelerator backpacks are advised not to cross the streams, and any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property. 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 71st in the world and 3rd in the South Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 55.48 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
