The Great Socialist Jamahiriya of The Great Lake States is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Supreme Eternal Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.519 billion Great Lake Statesians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chicago. The average income tax rate is 94.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Great Lake Statesian economy, worth 435 trillion Gold Dinars 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 172,844 Gold Dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Loud Patriotic Music Day has been ranked the seventh best new holiday of the year, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, the comic book series 'The Supreme Eternal Leader and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, and nations across the world are quick to praise The Supreme Eternal Leader's good looks and intellectual prowess. Crime is totally unknown. The Great Lake States's national animal is the Wolverine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Great Lake States is ranked 29,600th in the world and 1st in Great Lakes Alliance for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 5,845.83 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
