The Republic of Gilakistan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Seyyed Ali Sharooz with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.934 billion Gilaks 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salqudabad. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 78.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Gilakistanian economy, worth 614 trillion Gilakistani Rials a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 209,304 Gilakistani Rials, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 758,254 per year while the poor average 41,189, a ratio of 18.4 to 1.

The nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, self-driving cars occasionally mow down pedestrians to avoid inconveniencing passengers, chocolate in Gilakistan has its flavour enhanced by the salty tears of enslaved factory workers, and employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning. Crime is totally unknown. Gilakistan's national animal is the Dolphine, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Islam.

Gilakistan is ranked 3,240th in the world and 180th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 94.64 on the Human Development Index.
