|Leader||President Charles Journeycake|
The Commonwealth of Gervase is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Charles Journeycake with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, ubiquitous missile silos, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 20.314 billion Gervasians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pattonville. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Gervasian economy, worth a remarkable 2,903 trillion vatels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 142,911 vatels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Stylish juvenile delinquents are highly overrepresented in fatal motorcycle accidents, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, tourists are forbidden to enter Native Gervasian lands, and veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gervase's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
