The Green Otter's State of Garbelia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Lutra Otto with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.094 billion Garbeli are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Garvida. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Garbelery economy, worth 107 trillion CryptoGarbels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming. Average income is 98,177 CryptoGarbels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, and prudishness is on the way out. Crime is totally unknown. Garbelia's national animal is the Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Garbelia is ranked 6,458th in the world and 107th in Forest for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2,011.97 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
