The People's Republic of Geckos with Shades is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 219 million Geckos with Shades enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 72.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant a Gecko with Shades economy, worth 1.47 trillion Crickets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 6,725 Crickets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, discarded pennies litter the streets, and it is illegal to make racist remarks in public. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Geckos with Shades's national animal is the Geico Gecko, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Geckos with Shades is ranked 238,898th in the world and 8,324th in the South Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 1,822.68 Standard Monetary Units.
