The Free Association of Gistamesi is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.792 billion Gistamesinese 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greenwater Hill. The average income tax rate is 74.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Gistamesinese economy, worth 89.6 trillion Gistans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,007 Gistans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, and parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gistamesi's national animal is the Bandicoot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gistamesi is ranked 31,694th in the world and 500th in 10000 Islands for Smartest Citizens, with 47.23 quips per hour.
