Greater Ale Permars

Population1.903 billion

LeaderPresident Robert Rodriguez


The Banana Republic of Greater Ale Permars is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Robert Rodriguez with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.903 billion Greater Ale Permarsians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lyns. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 57.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Greater Ale Permarsian economy, worth 199 trillion Permarks a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 104,841 Permarks, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

The price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, and church and state are inseparable in their influence on education. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Ale Permars's national animal is the Jaguar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Universalism.

Greater Ale Permars is ranked 30,682nd in the world and 1,561st in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,244.66 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
