New Gerji

Population2.587 billion


The Republic of New Gerji is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.587 billion New Gerjans 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 Spirituality, Administration, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.1%.

The thriving New Gerjian economy, worth 173 trillion grahams a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is 67,032 grahams, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 189,518 per year while the poor average 18,967, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.

Astronauts take one small step for New Gerji and one giant step backward from confrontation, unshaven men are viewed with suspicion in courts of law, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, and statues of famous citizens are erected or demolished on a purely partisan basis. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Gerji's national animal is the spider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Gerji is ranked 955th in the world and 643rd in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 150 Valid Endorsements.
