The World Confederation of Guaylandia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Federal Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, soft-spoken computers, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.741 billion Guaylandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Geneva. The average income tax rate is 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Guaylandian economy, worth 638 trillion International Standard Credits 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 Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 111,222 International Standard Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million International Standard Credits of property damage, country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, autarky's deemed malarkey as foreign bric-a-brac's brought back, and space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Guaylandia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Guaylandia's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Neo-Humanism.

Guaylandia is ranked 9,794th in the world and 8th in The DankLeft Commune for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 402.39 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
