Location: Forest

Regional Influence: Apprentice


The Green Otter's State of Garbelia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lutra Otto with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.261 billion Garbeli love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Garvida. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The all-consuming Garbelery economy, worth 228 trillion CryptoGarbels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 100,971 CryptoGarbels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, and those who cut young children are told to cut it out. Crime is totally unknown. Garbelia's national animal is the Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Lutrianism.

Garbelia is ranked 3,835th in the world and 71st in Forest for Most Inclusive, scoring 266.93 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
