The Defender Nation of Ganimard is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions and compulsory military service. The cynical, humorless population of 11.872 billion Ganimardians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 48.2%.

The very strong Ganimardian economy, worth 585 trillion francs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 49,325 francs, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Political activists are routinely executed, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ganimard's national animal is the stallion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ganimard is ranked 122,448th in the world and 5th in Terra Aetheria for Most Pro-Market, scoring 40.6 on the Rand Index.
