The Womyn's Paradise of Gynostan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Sister Number One with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, triple-decker prams, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.376 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 14,769 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 690,917 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has nearly as many history museums as Gynos, schoolchildren quote interesting facts about the square of the hypotenuse, people across the world seek to be healthier by eliminating carbs, and foreign leaders who don't applaud Sister Number One's speeches are regarded as enemies of Gynostan. 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 209,198th in the world and 4th in Pontbridge Islands for Least Corrupt Governments, with 0.49 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
