Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Slowley Improving Nation of Glugerstut is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by President James Wilson Scott with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.1 billion Glugerstutians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Volheigmer. The average income tax rate is 68.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Glugerstutian economy, worth 627 trillion Euros a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 88,342 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

It's always rabbit season, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, and President James Wilson Scott is described as an everyday person with normal tastes and the usual interests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Glugerstut's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

Glugerstut is ranked 90,456th in the world and 2,969th in Balder for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 2,227.1 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
