|Leader||Emperor Nathan IV and Empress Sophia|
The Empire of Ghant is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Nathan IV and Empress Sophia with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.64 billion Ghantar hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ghish. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Ghantish economy, worth a remarkable 4,303 trillion Ghantmarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 258,607 Ghantmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The Ghantish delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", crackheads chase drug-loaded drones in hopes of a lucky drop, the government supplies ragtag bands of resistance fighters in exchange for vague promises of future payment, and cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Ghant's national animal is the Great Auk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
