Gibtopia

Population40 million

CurrencyReichsmark
AnimalHoney Badger

The Armed Republic of Gibtopia is a small, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, infamous sell-swords, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 40 million Giblords are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government prioritizes Defense, although Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.0%.

The thriving Gibtopian economy, worth 3.19 trillion Reichsmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 79,662 Reichsmarks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 234,777 per year while the poor average 21,269, a ratio of 11.0 to 1.

Newly-peaceful nations are forced to use assault rifles as farming tools due to a lack of funds for purchasing anything else, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, and the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Gibtopia's national animal is the Honey Badger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Gibtopia is ranked 143,731st in the world and 13th in Landmarks Holy Empire for Most Pacifist, with 13.85 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
