Regional Influence: Shoeshiner

Location: The North Pacific



Population1.331 billion



The Republic of Gbliss is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, devout population of 1.331 billion Gblissians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Malik. The average income tax rate is 40.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Gblissian economy, worth 127 trillion Lisses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 96,155 Lisses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, Leader has just been declared ruler of Gbliss in an international press conference, and G-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gbliss's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gbliss is ranked 100,288th in the world and 4,805th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 32.11 on the Hayek Index.
