The Ghu

Population479 million



The People's Republic of The Ghu is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 479 million Ghuans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ahkzergrad. The average income tax rate is 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Ghuan economy, worth 44.6 trillion Gels a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 93,165 Gels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is quite common for bar patrons to discuss Wittgenstein over cordials and games of backgammon, sex changes are routinely performed at The Ghu's hospitals, all astronauts are hot twenty-something models selected because they have 'the right stuff', and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Ghu's national animal is the Slime, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Ghu is ranked 174,628th in the world and 4th in Baraistan for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
