The Armed Republic of The Geraldic Islands is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, aversion to nipples, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 728 million Geraldics have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gerald City. The average income tax rate is 28.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Geraldic economy, worth 77.7 trillion Imperial Juwels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,701 Imperial Juwels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Pet owners make sure their dogs wear diapers, career advisors ask sociopathic orphan girls if they have considered becoming professional assassins, the news is showing footage of Leader bullying an old man to the point of tears, and young schoolchildren pledge allegiance to One Nation Under Bum Indivisible By Poo. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Geraldic Islands's national animal is the Wild Gerald, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Geraldic Islands is ranked 39,833rd in the world and 776th in 10000 Islands for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,130.46 Tourists Per Hour.
