The Isle of Grossmania

Population9.78 billion



The Commonwealth of The Isle of Grossmania is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Maestro with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 9.78 billion Grossmen have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kelsingtown. The average income tax rate is 80.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Isle of Grossmanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,099 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,402 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard, and it is considered unpatriotic to learn a foreign language. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Isle of Grossmania's national animal is the Tigger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Isle of Grossmania is ranked 96,055th in the world and 4,826th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,829.84 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
