The Gallow

Population978 million

The Dictatorship of The Gallow is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its smutty television, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working population of 978 million Gallowians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 59.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Gallowian economy, worth 63.9 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is 65,318 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Leader panders to nontraditional families, the government is forced to pander to the will of every fruitcake politician, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, and supermarket milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Gallow's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Gallow is ranked 99,710th in the world and 313th in The Leftist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.23 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
