Lower Briel Guanzapolia

Population163 million


The Republic of Lower Briel Guanzapolia is a very large, safe nation, notable for its frequent executions, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 163 million Lower Briel Guanzapolians 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 36.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Lower Briel Guanzapolian economy, worth 9.62 trillion Dollars 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 Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is 59,018 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Frightened witnesses and seriously ill jurors wear the same handcuffs as the defendant, there's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, and diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lower Briel Guanzapolia's national animal is the lion.

Lower Briel Guanzapolia is ranked 107,105th in the world and 5,565th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 74.6 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
