CurrencyGilakistani Rial

The Republic of Gilakistan is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Seyyed Ali Sharooz with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.928 billion Gilaks are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salqudabad. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 78.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Gilakistanian economy, worth 610 trillion Gilakistani Rials a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 208,621 Gilakistani Rials, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 675,328 per year while the poor average 48,666, a ratio of 13.9 to 1.

Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, and self-driving cars occasionally mow down pedestrians to avoid inconveniencing passengers. Crime is totally unknown. Gilakistan's national animal is the Dolphine, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Islam.

Gilakistan is ranked 3,247th in the world and 179th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 94.62 on the Human Development Index.
