The Hellenic Kingdom of Gastravon is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Tyrone Slyferius with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, strictly enforced bedtime, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.534 billion Gastravonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orongkungkrae'. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Gastravonian economy, worth 444 trillion Ilunns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 175,249 Ilunns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, financial investors are noting a boom in artillery, the new airport at Mr. Giles' farm is panicking his sheep, and the fastest growing demographic of porn viewership is twelve to seventeen. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Gastravon's national animal is the Gastravonian Sapphire Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholic.

Gastravon is ranked 7,773rd in the world and 236th in the South Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.66 Years.
