Gothgraff and Lilium

The Kingdom of Gothgraff and Lilium is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 293 million Gothilum are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.9%.

The very strong Gothilum economy, worth 18.1 trillion Glorias a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is 61,667 Glorias, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 188,380 per year while the poor average 15,646, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Crime is moderate. Gothgraff and Lilium's national animal is the Hebridean Goat, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Gothgraff and Lilium is ranked 196,836th in the world and 8,626th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 686.12 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
