The Democratic Republic of Gianica is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 511 million Gianicans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Servena. The average income tax rate is 55.2%.

The strong Gianican economy, worth 27.8 trillion Gias a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 54,360 Gias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Arbitration is mightier than the sword, the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake, female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, and Leader's relatives have been married into the royal families of foreign nations against their will. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gianica's national animal is the Gian bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Gianica is ranked 111,053rd in the world and 4,901st in Lazarus for Most Income Equality, scoring 21.94 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
