How much influence, if any, does religion have on your nation's government?
AN ISLAMIC WORLD is a caliphate that is leading the global Islamic revolution!
Please do not resist your inevitable conversions to Islam! You will be much happier once you have submitted to Allah!
Our world!
If you take this overly-exaggerated nation seriously, you're a damn fool.

Religion has no influence on the Government of Gandoor, the strict separation of church and state is enshrined into the Constitution and this separation is protected in practice as well.

What is your nation's biggest "skeleton in the closet", so to speak?

For years, Duchess Veroniek had been kept locked up and confined within the royal palace by her parents, Grand Duke Hinrich-Franz and Grand Duchess Jolande of Alzatia. She was even sexually abused, but nobody suspected anything because Hinrich-Franz and Jolande had the outward appearance of a devout, loving and hard-working couple (even though they were complete monsters behind the castle walls). But their cruelty eventually backfired on them: in 2013, they were shot dead after the abused princess got her hands on one of their hunting rifles. Veroniek then became the Grand Duchess of Alzatia, and the horrific abuses of her parents were finally brought to light. For many people, this news came as quite the shock because Alzatia was a safe and peaceful nation, so things like this were unheard of.

What would a typical day's meals consist of in Gandoor? And does it differ between the rich and poor at all?

Between 1947 and 1953, our nation was allied with the Soviet Union and was a member of the Eastern Bloc. In 1953, during the premiership of Junichiro Suzuki and two years after the Gandoorese Restoration of Democracy, the alliance with the Soviet Union came to an official end and our nation declared an official stance of neutrality in the Cold War between the West and the East.

Despite this neutrality, however, our nation was considered to be closer to the Western democracies rather than the Eastern authoritarian states between 1953 and the end of the Cold War in 1991, although this was mostly due to fears that we would be thought of as similar to the authoritarian states in the East if we were close to them. (This fear was so entrenched in our government that we actually severed diplomatic relations with most Eastern Bloc states after we ended our alliance with the USSR and didn't restore diplomatic relations with most of them until the mid-70s, early 80s.)

Unfortunately, due to our nation's large and widespread population, it would be impossible to describe what a typical day's meals would look like, as it can vary wildly depending on where you are in the nation.

We did not, although interestingly enough Yugoslavia was a state that we did maintain relations with during the Cold War, considering that they were not aligned with the USSR either.

Natishna wrote:What was the worst economic crisis your nation ever faced?

The post-war economic crisis which began after the premiership of Alexei Petrikov and the Gandoor Civil War in the 1950s. During the crisis, unemployment reached a peak of 19.6% in 1961 and the gdyn faced increased levels of inflation. In October 1957 (before the crisis officially began in November 1957), 1 GDY was equivalent to US$1.42, but within only two years, it was equivalent to only US$0.36. Luckily, the gdyn did manage to mostly stabilize in value by the early 1960s, with its value ultimately fluctuating between being worth US$0.60 and US$0.73 during the crisis.

The post-war economic crisis came to an official end in 1972, although our nation wouldn't reach pre-civil war economic levels until 1985.
