The Empire of Glosten is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 335 million Glostenians 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 Education, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 58.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Glostenian economy, worth 17.3 trillion glosten pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 51,621 glosten pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, vaccinations are mandatory, and school children are expected to know the names of all seven hundred native tribes and their cultural practices. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Glosten's national animal is the three headed-dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
