The Kingdom of Gwyndelm is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, keen interest in outer space, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 7.236 billion Gwyndelmians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, pro-business government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Defense, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Gwyndelmian economy, worth a remarkable 1,071 trillion Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 148,144 Crowns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 779,156 per year while the poor average 15,035, a ratio of 51.8 to 1.

Drivers regularly pull over for nonexistent police cars, broken suspension systems are giving auto repair shops plenty of business, surrogate mothers are encouraged to refer to their wombs as 'rental space', and schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gwyndelm's national animal is the Griffin, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Gwyndelm is ranked 195,917th in the world and 193rd in The Kingdom of Great Britain for Most Primitive, scoring -340.15 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
