Gir Toritzpoldi

The Dictatorship of Gir Toritzpoldi is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.425 billion Gir Toritzpoldians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 48.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Gir Toritzpoldian economy, worth 15.1 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 10,585 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A major religion has been named as Gir Toritzpoldi's national religion, the government advises foreign diplomats to speak softly and carry a big bag of cash, foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, and Gir Toritzpoldi has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gir Toritzpoldi's national animal is the emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gir Toritzpoldi is ranked 210,603rd in the world and 365th in Forest for Rudest Citizens, with 11.49 Insults Per Minute.
