OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Commonwealth of Genlann is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, lack of airports, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 10.053 billion Genlannians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taprobana. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Genlannian economy, worth a remarkable 3,165 trillion Pfennigs a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Tourism, Gambling, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 314,895 Pfennigs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Scholars are leaving the country at an alarming rate, practising saying 'how now brown cow' is an essential part of holiday planning, sermons are regularly interrupted by businessmen taking phone calls, and visitors to Violet Rock City are stunned to learn that they must memorize the "99 Principles" before entering. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Genlann's national animal is the Rainbow Dash, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pastafarianism.

Genlann is ranked 7,631st in the world and 200th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Governments, scoring 36.22 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
