Peoples Republic of GG

Population415 million

CurrencyGGian Dollar

The Federation of Peoples Republic of GG is a huge, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, soft-spoken computers, and state-planned economy. The cynical population of 415 million GGians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 52.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Peoples Republic of GGian economy, worth 12.8 trillion GGian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 30,830 GGian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Billions are being spent on a new island airport, parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, and NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Peoples Republic of GG's national animal is the T-Rex, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Peoples Republic of GG is ranked 156,004th in the world and 5,654th in Balder for Most Politically Free, scoring 33.33 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
