Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic States of Geramundo is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Gerrick with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.636 billion Geramundans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Public Transport, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skyhelm. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Geramundan economy, worth 408 trillion Gerams a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,364 Gerams, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment, intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, and people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns. Crime is totally unknown. Geramundo's national animal is the Great Horned Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Geramundo is ranked 25,422nd in the world and 66th in Wintreath for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 96.22 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
