The Gold Camel

Population3.86 billion

The Himalayas of The Gold Camel is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 3.86 billion Gold Camelians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.1%.

The all-consuming Gold Camelian economy, worth 382 trillion Times a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 99,218 Times, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, marine biology students are shocked to discover that a whale is a mammal, parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend, and eminent domain has been abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Gold Camel's national animal is the Dromedary, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Gold Camel is ranked 85,595th in the world and 1st in Himalayas for Nudest, with 150.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
