Significant Gravitas

Population1.002 billion



The Free Land of Significant Gravitas is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, ban on automobiles, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.002 billion Significant Gravitasians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Makaze. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Significant Gravitasian economy, worth 110 trillion gils a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 110,094 gils, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Leader's bedroom, the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, and people are bored of easy crossword puzzles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Significant Gravitas's national animal is the octopus, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Significant Gravitas is ranked 152,894th in the world and 4,897th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -2 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
