The Green Otter's State of Garbelia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Lutra Otto with a fair hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, soft-spoken computers, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.151 billion Garbeli 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, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Garvida. The average income tax rate is 92.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Garbelery economy, worth 113 trillion CryptoGarbels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming. Average income is 98,283 CryptoGarbels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Barbed wire entanglements and guard towers surround the Garvida Natural History Museum, the government is avowedly secular, the nation is so apathetic that Garbeli can barely find the energy to bring new issues to the government, and the government is seen as openly hostile to all religion. Crime is totally unknown. Garbelia's national animal is the Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Lutrianism.

Garbelia is ranked 230,370th in the world and 384th in Forest for Most Primitive, scoring -292.1 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
