Gladys and the drowning fish

Population1.862 billion

The Nothing Fishy Going On Here of Gladys and the drowning fish is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Overlord Steven with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.862 billion Drowning Fushs enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Piranha Folk Music with Milfred. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Fushian economy, worth 170 trillion Salmon a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is 91,455 Salmon, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, pro-wrestling bouts open with a legal disclaimer insisting that any violence is guaranteed 100% faked, and there's a bright dawn ahead for Gladys and the drowning fish. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gladys and the drowning fish's national animal is the Wildebeest, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is thebitcjboy.

Gladys and the drowning fish is ranked 36,119th in the world and 12th in Britannia Prima for Most Secular, with 33.28 Atheism Rate.
