Overview Factbook Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederacy of Gnate is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Hale with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.446 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 4.0%.

The all-consuming Gnatean economy, worth 187 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 129,627 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 433,605 per year while the poor average 28,806, a ratio of 15.1 to 1.

Terrified neighbors cower behind concertina wire and machine gun nests, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, from the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Gnate, and tourists visit Gnate to mass-moon Gnatean politicians. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, 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 158,449th in the world and 8,856th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -6.32 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
