Mushroom Gorge

Population880 million

CapitalMushroom City
LeaderLe Fishe


The Gap Jump of Mushroom Gorge is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Le Fishe with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 880 million Mushroom Gorgers 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mushroom City. The average income tax rate is 28.8%.

The strong Mushroom Gorger economy, worth 48.5 trillion wumingazzes a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 55,140 wumingazzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Kids refer to anything below the neck as "the parts that shall not be named", old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and sexuality-questioning teenagers are placed in locked rooms with dirty magazines and lewd posters. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force. Mushroom Gorge's national animal is the fish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Mushroom Gorge is ranked 142,700th in the world and 50th in Callista for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,644.8 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
