Terre des Gaules

Population16.487 billion



The Republic of Terre des Gaules is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its smutty television, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 16.487 billion Gauls are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous government prioritizes Law & Order, with Education, Public Transport, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paritte. The average income tax rate is 53.4%.

The Gaulic economy, worth 610 trillion Francs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is 37,027 Francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Gauls incessantly needle their doctors for relief, the government is suspected of mass disappearing dissidents both at home and abroad, clowns are being rounded up and admitted to mental institutions, and the Terre des Gaules Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Terre des Gaules's national animal is the Coq, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Terre des Gaules is ranked 118,291st in the world and 17th in Teremara for Lowest Crime Rates, with 61.4 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
