Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of Gillboa is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, avowedly heterosexual populace, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 883 million Gillboans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shiloh. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.4%.

The powerhouse Gillboan economy, worth 89.6 trillion Laurels a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 101,448 Laurels, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 287,731 per year while the poor average 28,579, a ratio of 10.1 to 1.

Arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gillboa's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gillboa is ranked 81,725th in the world and 2,026th in The North Pacific for Largest Populations, with 883 million Capita.
