Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Commonwealth of Glen-Rhodes is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Miklos Kanellis with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 19.941 billion Rhodesians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grand Port. The average income tax rate is 48.6%.

The all-consuming Rhodesian economy, worth a remarkable 2,584 trillion Glen-Rhodes Dollars a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 129,608 Glen-Rhodes Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here, an IT mega-corporation has a patent pending on the rectangle, it is rumoured that Miklos Kanellis uses a magic 8-ball to make policy decisions, and teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries. Crime is totally unknown. Glen-Rhodes's national animal is the Mute Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the United Church of Rhodes.

Glen-Rhodes is ranked 1,210th in the world and 21st in the South Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 31,905.18 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
