The Federal Republic of GI-Land is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader and King Gianluca IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.288 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 is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlantis. The average income tax rate is 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving GI-Landian economy, worth 635 trillion Gianlucian Tacks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 76,640 Gianlucian Tacks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

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 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 181,244th in the world and 7,012th in the South Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8.31 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
