|Leader||Prime Minister Archimedes D'Siracusa|
The Most Serene Republic of Gymnostan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Archimedes D'Siracusa with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic, humorless population of 20.067 billion Gymnostanis 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Godiva City. The average income tax rate is 87.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Gymnostani economy, worth a remarkable 1,309 trillion verduroes a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 65,250 verduroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, homophobia is off the menu, the sanitised and dull music festivals of Gymnostan are famed for their reasonable volume levels, and soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gymnostan's national animal is the Gymnostani Mastiff, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Naturism.
