OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Free Land of Isle of Glastonbury is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Federal Council of Glastonbury with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, infamous sell-swords, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.314 billion Glastonburyans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Shire. The average income tax rate is 89.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Isle of Glastonburyian economy, worth 172 trillion Norfolks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 131,479 Norfolks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The number of students attending university has reached a record high, politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems, manufacturers are sued for almost anything not covered in their catalogue-sized manuals, and truck drivers turn their engines off and coast whenever they're going downhill. Crime is totally unknown. Isle of Glastonbury's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is All religions are protected.

Isle of Glastonbury is ranked 7,606th in the world and 243rd in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 12,227.04 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
