Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederacy of Gnate is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Hale with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.116 billion Gnatians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.6%.

The all-consuming Gnatean economy, worth 147 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 132,541 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 446,328 per year while the poor average 29,160, a ratio of 15.3 to 1.

Most governmental positions are filled by zealous nationalists, airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, conspiracy theorists allege Gnate City's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, and directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Gnate City as a backdrop. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Gnate's national animal is the Giant Honeybee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gnate is ranked 6,258th in the world and 221st in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 6,709.39 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
