The Allied States of Girldom is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Annette with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 21.001 billion Girls 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Rose Garden. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Girly economy, worth a remarkable 3,811 trillion Roses a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 181,487 Roses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Annette is famed for giving great back rubs, there's an aura of pseudoscience around academia, politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, and the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Girldom's national animal is the Butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Girldom is ranked 239,113th in the world and 5th in Spoiled Cats for Fattest Citizens, with 2.03 Obesity Rate.
