The Most Serene Republic of Gymnostan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Archimedes D'Siracusa with a fair hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, enforced nudity, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic, humorless population of 20.583 billion Gymnostanis enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Godiva City. The average income tax rate is 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Gymnostani economy, worth a remarkable 1,365 trillion verduroes a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 66,319 verduroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, homophobia is off the menu, the sanitised and dull music festivals of Gymnostan are famed for their reasonable volume levels, and soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gymnostan's national animal is the Gymnostani Mastiff, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Naturism.

Gymnostan is ranked 7,061st in the world and 225th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 12,669.35 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
