The Kingdom of Gleichenfall is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by William Dryden with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.47 billion Gleichenfallians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wardenclyffe City. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Gleichenfallian economy, worth 347 trillion Paits a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 27,859 Paits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gardeners must genetically test weeds for unique traits before digging them up, the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', the thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, and the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gleichenfall's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gleichenfall is ranked 157,135th in the world and 8,127th in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -7.76 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
