Significant Gravitas

Population1.504 billion



The Free Land of Significant Gravitas is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.504 billion Significant Gravitasians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Makaze. The average income tax rate is 76.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Significant Gravitasian economy, worth 163 trillion gils a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,748 gils, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians are forced to wear portable lie detectors at all times, foreign governments are looking into weaponizing the infamous Significant Gravitasian bee, the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, and passengers often cause a stink on public transport. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Significant Gravitas's national animal is the octopus, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Significant Gravitas is ranked 7,656th in the world and 141st in the West Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 2,168.36 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
