The Republic of TheBornGorilla is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 350 million TheBornGorillans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nicosia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.2%.
The frighteningly efficient TheBornGorillan economy, worth 35.3 trillion EURS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 100,728 EURS, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 401,113 per year while the poor average 17,038, a ratio of 23.5 to 1.
Anniversaries of major historical events pass unnoticed, the tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists, the government considers it a sacred duty to video bikini-clad beach swimmers, and a handful of megacorporations own every "craft brewery" in the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. TheBornGorilla's national animal is the Cypriot Mouflon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
