The United Socialist States of Great Gothica is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 782 million Goths love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Gothic economy, worth 29.2 trillion pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 37,394 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Maned Wolf is one of the most popular forenames in Great Gothica, the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, international collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through Great Gothica, and strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Gothica's national animal is the maned wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
