Gor Kebab

Population11.697 billion

CapitalKebab City
LeaderMatty Taylor


The Republic of Gor Kebab is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Matty Taylor with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 11.697 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 large, corrupt, liberal 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 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gor Kebabian economy, worth a remarkable 2,107 trillion Kiscks a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 180,159 Kiscks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

When their backs are against the walls Gor Kebabians look out for gay men, acrimonious legal battles result during divorce proceedings, families burn Matty Taylor's latest official photograph to keep warm, and traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income. 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 6,838th in the world and 68th in Europe for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 10,028.57 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
