The Islands of Gilbrina

Population858 million

The Confederacy of The Islands of Gilbrina is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its triple-decker prams, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 858 million Islands of Gilbrinans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 79.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Islands of Gilbrinan economy, worth 78.4 trillion Gilbrs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 91,398 Gilbrs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's ambassadors often conduct their business in jail cells, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', and the state considers itself the 'third parent' of every child in the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Islands of Gilbrina's national animal is the Anthro Peacock, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Islands of Gilbrina is ranked 26,699th in the world and 1,157th in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 978.22 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
