The Empress Antigone of Gibraltarica is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Thalia van den Bosch with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 10.644 billion Gibraltaricans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, liberal government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paradise Lost. The average income tax rate is 35.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gibraltarican economy, worth a remarkable 1,751 trillion Pentacles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 164,578 Pentacles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, married couples must call each other "darling" or risk a fine, arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, and an increasing number of animal species are named 'Bob'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gibraltarica's national animal is the Grey Fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Wiccanism.

Gibraltarica is ranked 18,022nd in the world and 3rd in Dawn for Most Developed, scoring 84.44 on the Human Development Index.
