The Womyn's Paradise of Gynostan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Sister Number One with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, strictly enforced bedtime, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.211 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 — is primarily concerned with 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 18,413 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 760,544 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The Gyno Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, and the seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire. 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 245,101st in the world and 10th in Pontbridge Islands for Most Inclusive, scoring 2.92 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
