LeaderPrime Minister Anthony Macron


The Republic of Gouverne is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Anthony Macron with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, triple-decker prams, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.906 billion Gouverneans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Butbut. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gouvernean economy, worth a remarkable 1,254 trillion Argents a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 158,738 Argents, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are bleary-eyed after staying up all night with a good book (Gouverne has found 4 easter eggs), Prime Minister Anthony Macron steals from the rich and gives to the needy, visiting dignitaries often end up cuddling in the hot tub with Prime Minister Anthony Macron, and history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students. Crime is totally unknown. Gouverne's national animal is the Iyora, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gouverne is ranked 11,102nd in the world and 4th in Hive for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.55 years.
