The Free Land of Gastononia is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.503 billion Gastononians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, outspoken morass — prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Defense isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Gastononian economy, worth 209 trillion Gastoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Basket Weaving. Average income is 83,668 Gastoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, and minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gastononia's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gastononia is ranked 22,635th in the world and 2nd in Mello for Most Developed, scoring 80.74 on the Human Development Index.
