The Gilded Ray

The Free Land of The Gilded Ray is a huge, safe nation, notable for its soft-spoken computers, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 904 million Gilded Rays are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Citadel of Light. The average income tax rate is 30.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Gilded Rayian economy, worth 31.8 trillion Gilded Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Basket Weaving, Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 35,128 Gilded Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children who display even minimal sporting aptitude are immediately assigned a personal trainer, back-alley circumcision clinics are popping up all over the nation, murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, and fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal. Crime is totally unknown. The Gilded Ray's national animal is the Lion, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

The Gilded Ray is ranked 164,866th in the world and 5th in Inferno Stellaria for Highest Economic Output, with 31.8 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
