|Capital||The Shareholders' City|
The Sovereign Group of Companies of Glanst is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its vat-grown people, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 688 million Glanstonians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Shareholders' City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Glanstian economy, worth 118 trillion Atoms a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 171,977 Atoms, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 490,281 per year while the poor average 48,104, a ratio of 10.2 to 1.
Pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects, the flight attendant who draws the short straw is on "cockpit bucket duty", Leader has been seen stealthily slicing fifths off bread loaves, and the inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Glanst's national animal is the corporate shark, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.
