The Ultimacy of Glass Heart is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Glass Heart with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.299 billion GHeartians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arvekryn. The average income tax rate is 94.2%.

The frighteningly efficient GHeart economy, worth a remarkable 1,219 trillion Crowns a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 167,023 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, billions of Crowns are being blown on orbital weapons development, airport announcements inform passengers that flights have been delayed because pilots are having afternoon naps, and serial killers are the country's biggest import. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Glass Heart's national animal is the Fat Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Goomyism.

Glass Heart is ranked 36,200th in the world and 917th in Lazarus for Most Extreme, scoring 30.41 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
