Gymnopedie No 1

Population3.974 billion


The Republic of Gymnopedie No 1 is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ritual sacrifices, and digital currency. The hard-working, cynical population of 3.974 billion Gymnopedie No 1ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 28.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Gymnopedie No 1ian economy, worth 234 trillion marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 59,078 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

You're only as old as you feel, tardiness has increased after carpooling was classified as a criminal offense, kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles, and animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gymnopedie No 1's national animal is the leopard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Gymnopedie No 1 is ranked 65,862nd in the world and 1,223rd in Artificial Solar System for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 3,880.34 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
