The Gummylands

The Most Serene Republic of The Gummylands is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its parental licensing program, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 1.286 billion Gummies enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Gummylandsian economy, worth 46.0 trillion jelly dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 35,765 jelly dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every week is blindness awareness week, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, citizens sell their moldy bread as homemade penicillin, and collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Gummylands's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Gummylands is ranked 36,431st in the world and 189th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.94 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
