The Gold Camel

The Himalayas of The Gold Camel is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 3.218 billion Gold Camelians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Gold Camelian economy, worth 343 trillion Times a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,666 Times, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", Jennifer Government is banned, an extra hand on the leg will give a horse-and-a-half of lead in a hundred jiffies on seven furlongs, and tourists flock to see the giant stone carvings of historical leaders at Mount Rushless. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Gold Camel's national animal is the Dromedary, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Gold Camel is ranked 44,329th in the world and 1st in Himalayas for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,041.98 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
