|Leader||Aleki Ferdinand Samson|
The Federation of Gonteris is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Aleki Ferdinand Samson with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, complete lack of prisons, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, devout population of 899 million Gonterisians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gonteris. The average income tax rate is 49.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Gonterisian economy, worth 94.4 trillion Butacas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 104,951 Butacas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Students do more community service than homework, hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, and credit scores fluctuate wildly with every change of government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gonteris's national animal is the Dungeness Crab, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
