Gamelan

The Nomadic Peoples of Gamelan is a huge, safe nation, notable for its lack of airports, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 457 million Gamelanians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Gamelanian economy, worth 15.0 trillion Emas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 32,904 Emas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present, the state considers itself the 'third parent' of every child in the nation, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, and anti-government web sites are springing up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gamelan's national animal is the Sunda Colugo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gamelan is ranked 188,888th in the world and 113th in Refugia for Highest Economic Output, with 15.0 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
