Gor Kebab

Population8.79 billion

CapitalKebab City
LeaderSteve Cotterill


The Republic of Gor Kebab is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Steve Cotterill with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 8.79 billion Gor Kebabians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kebab City. The average income tax rate is 87.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gor Kebabian economy, worth a remarkable 1,607 trillion Kiscks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 182,878 Kiscks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Good-looking soldier boys have celebrity status amongst the nation's homosexuals, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, foreign leaders with unpaid parking tickets are often refused entry, and whales in captivity live in little more than glorified goldfish bowls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Gor Kebab's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Gor Kebab is ranked 43,484th in the world and 341st in Europe for Most Patriotic, with 21.72 flags saluted per person per day.
