The Democratic States of Gajness is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 849 million Gajnessians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. The average income tax rate is 16.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Gajnessian economy, worth 54.6 trillion marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 64,272 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All footpaths have tollbooths, street preachers sell salvation with a side order of shame on every corner, bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime is totally unknown. Gajness's national animal is the Yadav, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gajness is ranked 43,082nd in the world and 1,298th in The East Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 111.36 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
