The Dominion of Gliasco is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 1.744 billion Gliascoans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tultin. The average income tax rate is 75.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gliascoan economy, worth 210 trillion guilders a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 120,468 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, the government has begun breaking all large businesses into thousands of mom-and-pop general stores, and getting an abortion takes less hassle than writing a letter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gliasco's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gliasco is ranked 117,803rd in the world and 4,804th in Osiris for Largest Populations, with 1.74 billion Capita.
