The Republic of Gladys and the drowning fish is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its daily referendums, smutty television, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic population of 655 million Drowning Fushs love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Piranha Folk Music with Milfred. The average income tax rate is 63.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Fushian economy, worth 39.4 trillion Salmon 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 led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 60,084 Salmon, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary, peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, and one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gladys and the drowning fish's national animal is the Wildebeest, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gladys and the drowning fish is ranked 51,665th in the world and 16th in Britannia Prima for Largest Governments, scoring 17.94 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
