The Gallow

Population959 million


The Dictatorship of The Gallow is a huge, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-working population of 959 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 Education, Healthcare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 61.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Gallowian economy, worth 58.5 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is 61,051 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nations that kill a Gallowian can expect a strongly worded letter, dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, and the new one Dollar coin also makes a handy throwing-star. 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 43,101st in the world and 243rd in The Leftist Assembly for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 3,782.28 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
