The Empire of Ganiax is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 39.756 billion Ganiaxians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ganiaxian economy, worth a remarkable 7,878 trillion Xardas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 198,172 Xardas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's never enough space in space, the lasting legacy of the current generation is a million years of buried radioactivity, the nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event, and the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ganiax's national animal is the Stalker, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ganiax is ranked 3,012th in the world and 119th in Balder for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 21,585.31 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
