Greater Guantanamo

The Empire of Greater Guantanamo is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 487 million Guantanamoans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.2%.

The powerhouse Guantanamoan economy, worth 43.0 trillion Pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 88,241 Pesos, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 774,719 per year while the poor average 1,492, a ratio of 519 to 1.

Happiness is all being miserable together, the "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away, tourists are kicked out if they express interest in their national sport, and forecasts predict rains of loose lead and mortar shells for the next six weeks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Greater Guantanamo's national animal is the Iguana, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Greater Guantanamo is ranked 304,730th in the world and 15th in Alesia for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring -8.94 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
