The Protectorate of Girelna is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Protector with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, cynical population of 896 million 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, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lords Port. The average income tax rate is 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Girel economy, worth 92.1 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 quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 102,807 Silvermarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government employees have reverted to carrier pigeon due to never-ending virus scans, the constant playing of Merry Birthday on Girel radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity, people are more interested in gossip about the private lives of politicians than their policies, and space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space. 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 164,325th in the world and 248th in Forest for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -4.06 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
