Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Republic of Gebidia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Marcus Oritas with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 13.636 billion Gebidians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Welfare, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, while Law & Order and Administration aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arvoria. The average income tax rate is 35.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gebidian economy, worth a remarkable 2,146 trillion Denalms a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 157,448 Denalms, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here, Arvoria's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, t-shirts displaying a photo of President Marcus Oritas performing the Full-Monty are selling out, and school children asked "what is two times two?" are likely to form a symposium to discuss how different answers make them feel. Crime is totally unknown. Gebidia's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Gebidia is ranked 53,545th in the world and 5th in Coalition of Catholic States for Most Extreme, scoring 21.46 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
