Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Republic of Gebidia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Marcus Oritas with a fair hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, rampant corporate plagiarism, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 13.089 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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arvoria. The average income tax rate is 33.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gebidian economy, worth a remarkable 2,074 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 158,485 Denalms, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love, stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here, and Arvoria's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight. 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 1,011th in the world and 2nd in Coalition of Catholic States for Most Devout, with 8,192.36 Prayers Per Hour.
