Commissioned Gentlemen

Population156 million


The Queendom of Commissioned Gentlemen is a very large, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 156 million Commissioned Gentlemenians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.2%.

The thriving Commissioned Gentlemenian economy, worth 9.89 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 63,383 betales, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 224,358 per year while the poor average 12,929, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, and anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Commissioned Gentlemen's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Commissioned Gentlemen is ranked 151,467th in the world and 45th in Society of Commissioned Gentlemen for Most Income Equality, scoring 5.76 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
