The Colony of Gargnys is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Governor Elkan Theend with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.926 billion Gargnysians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ingarie. The average income tax rate is 68.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Gargnysian economy, worth a remarkable 1,054 trillion Delechies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 88,416 Delechies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

The pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, taking a walk on the wild side is punishable by death, and the nation's diplomats are all talk and no action. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gargnys's national animal is the toad, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Islam.

Gargnys is ranked 5,272nd in the world and 294th in Lazarus for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 10,035.93 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
