Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Safe Haven of LGBT Equality is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Saint Nick with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, smutty television, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 17.016 billion Gays hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government is dominated by the Department of Industry, although Environment and Education are also considered important, while Law & Order and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The North Pole. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Gay economy, worth a remarkable 4,147 trillion Irish gold coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 243,715 Irish gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The art of conversation has been rediscovered, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', and travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. LGBT Equality's national animal is the reindeer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Naughty or Niceism.

LGBT Equality is ranked 1,218th in the world and 7th in Gay for Largest Black Market, with 539 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
