The Sovereign Group of Companies of Glanst
“Το δίκαιον ουκ άλλο τι ή του κρείττονος ξυμφέρον.”

Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Sovereign Group of Companies of Glanst is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its deadly medical pandemics, pith helmet sales, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 694 million Glanstonians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Shareholders' City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.0%.
The frighteningly efficient Glanstian economy, worth 119 trillion Atoms a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 172,039 Atoms, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 511,530 per year while the poor average 45,363, a ratio of 11.3 to 1.
Farmers are complaining that the buzzing and the sparks from the nearby MagRail are blighting their crops, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, new urban roads are threatening city parks, and the election for Leader's office's janitor is heating up. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Glanst's national animal is the corporate shark, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.
