The Womyn's Paradise of Gynostan is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Sister Number One with an iron fist, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, national health service, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 23.049 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 16,929 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 734,482 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Couch potatoes are considered to be model citizens, the act of reporting blasphemy is known as 'Orthodoxxing', unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, and foreign casinos have trouble paying fans who bet on the Femininegrad Cats' triumph against long odds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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 4th in the world and 1st in Pontbridge Islands for Most Beautiful Environments, with 19,370.65 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
