Gin Rummy

Population8.44 billion

CapitalStable 99


The Matriarchy of Gin Rummy is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-working, democratic population of 8.44 billion Stable 99 dwellers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stable 99. The average income tax rate is 53.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Equestrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,037 trillion bits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 122,877 bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, and bike rage is all the rage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gin Rummy's national animal is the phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Gin Rummy is ranked 22,882nd in the world and 18th in Equestria for Most Secular, with 42.49 Atheism Rate.
