The Social Democracy of Gardavasque is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Pamela Paris with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 5.229 billion Gardavascans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eternity. The average income tax rate is 67.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gardavascan economy, worth 575 trillion Yescas a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 109,988 Yescas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of President Pamela Paris's most personal functions, superfoods are often seen as supervillains, orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children, and red fabric is banned. Crime is totally unknown. Gardavasque's national animal is the Banshee Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Gardavasque is ranked 223,015th in the world and 121st in International Democratic Union for Most Secular, with 11.18 Atheism Rate.
