Gunnrland

The Empire of Gunnrland is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, rampant corporate plagiarism, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 284 million Gunnrlandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Gunnrlandian economy, worth 16.1 trillion Shillings a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 56,646 Shillings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, 4-year-olds studying for their mathematics exams are anxious that they will be unemployable in adulthood if they fail, money can't buy happiness but it can buy immunity to prosecution, and when you fly on Air Gunnrland you win a seat or you die. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gunnrland's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Gunnrland is ranked 226,875th in the world and 5th in Et Novus Orbis for Most Armed, with 0.17 Weapons Per Person.
