The Colony of Ghaptia is a large, genial nation, renowned for its parental licensing program, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 81 million Ghaptians 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 prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Public Transport, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. The average income tax rate is 31.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Ghaptian economy, worth 3.60 trillion bitcoins a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 44,448 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment, an underground movement of cigarette smokers has sprung up in response to a government ban, high school band practice is often crashed by technicolor-clad ravers, and the number of students attending university has reached a record high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ghaptia's national animal is the Chimpanzee.

Ghaptia is ranked 43,627th in the world and 2,082nd in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 2,973.49 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
