The Chromodynamic Flavor of Gell-Mannhattan is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Dr Murray Gellfarb with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 37.411 billion Gell-Mannhattanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Roosevelt Island. The average income tax rate is 62.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Gell-Mannhattanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,431 trillion quarks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 38,276 quarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place, Gell-Mannhattan has designated Roosevelt Island as its capital city, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, and Dr Murray Gellfarb has just been declared ruler of Gell-Mannhattan in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gell-Mannhattan's national animal is the sewer rat.

Gell-Mannhattan is ranked 61,895th in the world and 9th in New York for Most Average, scoring 42.66 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
