The Protectorate of Girelna is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Protector with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, soft-spoken computers, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.105 billion Girelnans are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The enormous, liberal, well-organized government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lords Port. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Girel economy, worth 270 trillion Silvermarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 128,567 Silvermarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Snapgram channel "Embarrassing Baby Lord Protector Pics" has made Lord Protector's mom a celebrity, the government has solemnly sworn not to look up other nations' internet browsing history if the favor is returned, international terrorists often get their weapons supply in Girelna, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Girelna's national animal is the Pangolin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Girelna is ranked 238,409th in the world and 426th in Forest for Most Primitive, scoring -444.66 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
