The Republic of Gelais is a large, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 89 million Gelaisians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 13.2%.
The Gelaisian economy, worth 4.42 trillion franc gelais a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Trout Farming. Average income is 49,681 franc gelais, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.
Garden stores are not allowed to sell water butts, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, the new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies, and anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Gelais's national animal is the beaver, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
