Grt Base Gamma

Population90 million


The Protectorate of Grt Base Gamma is a large, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 90 million Grt Base Gammen are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.2%.

The strong Grt Base Gamman economy, worth 5.03 trillion Bins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is 55,910 Bins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 456,151 per year while the poor average 1,483, a ratio of 307 to 1.

Going on a diet invalidates your passport, university graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts, games of cops and robbers typically end in at least one fatal shooting, and popular candidates who don't suffer last-second political scandals tend to get fished out of the Grt Base Gamma City River. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Grt Base Gamma's national animal is the Superbug, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Grt Base Gamma is ranked 76,853rd in the world and 3,427th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,679.75 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
