The Democratic States of Gidonia is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 503 million Gidonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sandrevia. The average income tax rate is 65.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gidonian economy, worth 46.2 trillion Lennies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 91,841 Lennies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Gidonians submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card, treaties are taken to be mere rules of thumb, court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, and government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Gidonia's national animal is the Elephant, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Gidonia is ranked 24,111th in the world and 790th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,378.52 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
