LeaderAlbani Gudmund


The Empire of Gudmund is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Albani Gudmund with a fair hand, and remarkable for its restrictive gun laws, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 2.55 billion Gudmundians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Horah. The average income tax rate is 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gudmundian economy, worth 317 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 124,490 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, trespassers entering Albani Gudmund's office are immediately vaporized, religious citizens are closely monitored for signs of self-harm, and the national security service are a bunch of crooks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Gudmund's national animal is the Sarcosuchus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gudmund is ranked 10,576th in the world and 10th in The Local Cluster for Most Developed, scoring 85.67 on the Human Development Index.
