The Protectorate of Girelna is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lord Protector with an iron fist, and notable for its ban on automobiles, complete lack of prisons, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 2.273 billion Girelnans are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The enormous, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lords Port. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Girel economy, worth 298 trillion Silvermarks 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 131,161 Silvermarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The dwindling faithful in the nation make expensive pilgrimages to the remaining places of worship, five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Girelna's national animal is the Pangolin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Girelna is ranked 234,543rd in the world and 397th in Forest for Fattest Citizens, with 4.3 Obesity Rate.
