The United States of Gealt is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 774 million Gealtians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 22.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Gealtian economy, worth 47.9 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 61,939 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

There have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, tie-dye has been outlawed for being 'too occult', and Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Gealt's national animal is the Rocky mountain cow elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gealt is ranked 38,386th in the world and 2,160th in The North Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 4.98 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
