The Islands of Gilbrina

Population1.793 billion

CurrencyGilbr
AnimalAnthro Peacock

The Confederacy of The Islands of Gilbrina is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.793 billion Islands of Gilbrinans 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 enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Islands of Gilbrinan economy, worth 177 trillion Gilbrs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,985 Gilbrs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Leader's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, The Islands of Gilbrina City has become the number one destination for urban exploration in The North Pacific, the army's use of chemical weapons leaves a bad taste in the mouth, and signs saying "No Poor People or Weirdoes" are common outside shops and cafés. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Islands of Gilbrina's national animal is the Anthro Peacock, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Islands of Gilbrina is ranked 14,771st in the world and 802nd in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,507.54 Tourists Per Hour.
