The Federal Republic of GI-Land is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader and King Gianluca IV with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.694 billion Gianlucians 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 enormous government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlantis. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving GI-Landian economy, worth 642 trillion Gianlucian Tacks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Pizza Delivery, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 73,940 Gianlucian Tacks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are disappointed to learn that cavemen never had a yabba-dabba-doo time riding dinosaurs to work, the government has begun breaking all large businesses into thousands of mom-and-pop general stores, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, and films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. GI-Land's national animal is the Phoenix-Cat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

GI-Land is ranked 106,544th in the world and 4,185th in the South Pacific for Nudest, with 123.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
