The Empire of Gargantuon is a huge, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 420 million Gargantuais are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 11.2%.

The thriving Gargantuonian economy, worth 33.5 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 79,766 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, teddy bear James Dean (aka "the Rebel Without the Claws") helps convince kids that candy cigarettes are cool, money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, and playing an online nation simulation game legally obliges you to buy the creator's latest novel. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gargantuon's national animal is the Penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Gargantuon is ranked 153,049th in the world and 6,410th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.59 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
