Southern Giraffe Islands

The Holy Nudist Queendom of Southern Giraffe Islands is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Grand Pharaoh Minnie Mouse with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, enslaved workforce, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.666 billion Giraffians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Spirituality, and Environment are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bikini City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Southern Giraffe Islandsian economy, worth 779 trillion peaches a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 292,253 peaches, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,380,122 per year while the poor average 36,673, a ratio of 37.6 to 1.

Government policies change at the drop of a rabbit, the new Liquor Legitimacy Office is besieged with job applications from people who have experience in "statistical sampling methods", police officers have nearly cracked a major underage astronomy syndicate, and destitute AIs lurk around online bulletin boards begging for spare peaches. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Southern Giraffe Islands's national animal is the giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pharaohism.

Southern Giraffe Islands is ranked 208,223rd in the world and 10,102nd in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 3.71 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
