The Holy Nudist Queendom of Southern Giraffe Islands is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Pharaoh Minnie Mouse with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.077 billion Giraffians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bikini City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.1%.
The frighteningly efficient Southern Giraffe Islandsian economy, worth 191 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 178,210 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.
The doctor has cold hands, blasphemers and government critics often die in very unusual and unlikely accidents, convicts released after being found "wrongfully imprisoned" are surprisingly chill about the whole thing, and the nation's soldiers sleep four to a bed in order to use space economically. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Southern Giraffe Islands's national animal is the giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pharaohism.
