Gaeslan 361

Population8.16 billion


The Commonwealth of Gaeslan 361 is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The cynical population of 8.16 billion Gaeslan 361ians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Gaeslan 361ian economy, worth 51.5 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Trout Farming, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 6,309 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gaeslan 361's national animal is the gyrfalcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Gaeslan 361 is ranked 163,934th in the world and 1st in The New Hetalia Order for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -4.06 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
