Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grandes' Duchy of Giscuambourg is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by HRH the Grande Duke David II with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 15.803 billion Giscuams 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Social Policy, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Giscuambourg. The average income tax rate is 49.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient giscuam economy, worth a remarkable 2,342 trillion Giscuam Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 148,243 Giscuam Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best, dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, conspiracy theorists allege Giscuambourg's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, and urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts. Crime is totally unknown. Giscuambourg's national animal is the Giscuam Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Giscuambourg is ranked 138,208th in the world and 164th in Gay for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.86 Crimes Per Hour.
