Location: The North Pacific

Regional Influence: Shoeshiner


The Republic of Gildenshtuck is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Oliver Blue with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.857 billion Gildenshtuckians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of amora. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Gildenshtuckian economy, worth 293 trillion gildens a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 157,831 gildens, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

Inheritance tax has recently been abolished, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, the only things written in the stars are arrest warrants for astrologers, and popular websites like NationStates are blocked for "national security". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gildenshtuck's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Freedom Christianity.

Gildenshtuck is ranked 270,909th in the world and 13,039th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.65 crimes per hour.
