The Womyn's Paradise of Gynostan is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Sister Number One with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, rampant corporate plagiarism, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.811 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, although Environment and Law & Order are also considered important. 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 11,627 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 586,937 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, the government maintains that belief brings greater security than money or a roof, truancy officers have a hard time catching children trained in advanced camouflage skills, and the government is funneling billions into Cape Gynostan following the shuttle crash. 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 158,254th in the world and 5th in Pontbridge Islands for Most Pro-Market, scoring -87.67 on the Rand Index.
