The Womyn's Paradise of Gynostan is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sister Number One with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.828 billion Gynos 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — prioritizes Defense, with Environment and Law & Order also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Femininegrad. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Gyno economy, worth an astonishing 15,357 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is a breathtaking 703,548 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, there are six more weeks of winter if a northerner sees his shadow, pallbearers at military funerals dive for cover when they hear the three-volley salute, and the dartboard at the Gyno Cancer Research Charity bears a picture of Sister Number One's face. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gynostan's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Goddess Worship.

Gynostan is ranked 219,972nd in the world and 5th in Pontbridge Islands for Nudest, with 0.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
