Welcome Gourgoutsala

We welcome The Fiefdom of Gourgoutsala (, as the 229th member nation state in 01 Eastern Roman Empire Region.

The Fiefdom of Gourgoutsala is a huge, pleasant nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its compassionate, hard-working population of 878 million have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass -- devotes most of its attentions to Public Transport, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and the Environment receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 35%. A small but healthy private sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, followed by Book Publishing and Trout Farming.
Military funding has been stripped back, prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, protests are illegal, and the streets are plagued with knife-wielding madmen. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Gourgoutsala's national animal is the chicken, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the drachma.
