The Sultanate of Geraldina is a very large, safe nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 133 million Geraldis are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The large, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 67.3%.
The strong Geraldinian economy, worth 9.32 trillion Geraldimes a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 70,064 Geraldimes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.
Centuries-old marble buildings are being torn down and replaced with corrugated steel wind tunnels, you're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence, organ donation is compulsory, and street preachers spend more time condemning government bureaucracy than passers-by. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Geraldina's national animal is the Golden Christmas Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
