Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Julia Gillard of Gillardium is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, parental licensing program, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, humorless population of 782 million Gillardians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canberra. The average income tax rate is 38.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Gillardiumian economy, worth 85.7 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 109,614 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects, rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million dollars of property damage, academics are questioning the quality of the nation's newly-reprinted science textbooks, and vets have been drafted in to help "fix" those who fail the parental license exam. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gillardium's national animal is the Kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gillardium is ranked 84,731st in the world and 6th in Diamond Citadel for Largest Populations, with 782 million Capita.
