The Defender Nation of Ganimard is a colossal, orderly nation, renowned for its frequent executions and compulsory military service. The cynical, humorless population of 9.953 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Industry, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 45.7%.

The very strong Ganimardian economy, worth 515 trillion francs a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 51,826 francs, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 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 28,223rd in the world and 20th in Artificial Solar System for Highest Economic Output, with 515 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
