The Shimmering Island of Ghiblitonoke is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, parental licensing program, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 3.131 billion Ghiblians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spirniero. The average income tax rate is 83.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Ghiblian economy, worth 318 trillion Siroes a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 101,793 Siroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

New pilots are regularly reminded that they are more expendable than their planes, the police turn a blind eye to desecration if it's done in the name of religion or protest, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ghiblitonoke's national animal is the Jellyfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Jellism.

Ghiblitonoke is ranked 118,005th in the world and 4,340th in Balder for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -4.84 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
