Gillikin Country

Gillikin Country (sometimes simply called "Gillikin") is the northernmost part of Oz and is more industrial and prosperous than the other countries. Many businessmen, merchants, politicians, and bureaucrats are Gillikinese. The land is a little colder than the rest of Oz, and is mountainous.

Gillikin is ruled by plutocratic oligarchy. Captains of industry buy positions on the ruling legislative body.
