The Constitutional Monarchy of Gecetesse is a very large, cultured nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 195 million Gecetesseans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 45.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Gecetessean economy, worth 13.4 trillion Vjeiras a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 68,497 Vjeiras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens sell their moldy bread as homemade penicillin, Gecetessean watches are often the only thing to survive a disaster intact, politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, and passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gecetesse's national animal is the Pantera gecetessensis, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gecetesse is ranked 113,399th in the world and 4,513th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 157.71 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
