Gd-1

The Free Land of Gd-1 is a colossal, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.146 billion Gd-1ians 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."

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 16.8%.

The Gd-1ian economy, worth 360 trillion $$s a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 58,652 $$s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

The state is footing the bill for billionaires' lawyers, artists regularly face criminal charges and art-burning parties are common, women don't report crimes to the emergency services for fear of being arrested, and pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gd-1's national animal is the Death's-head Hawkmoth, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Gd-1 is ranked 137,667th in the world and 1st in Gdansk for Most Beautiful Environments, with 140.54 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
