The Democratic Republic of Garrettnesia is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 383 million Garrettnesians 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port of Diamonds. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Garrettnesian economy, worth 11.0 trillion Glibnorts a year, is led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 28,684 Glibnorts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers, military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, Bunny Rabbit is one of the most popular forenames in Garrettnesia, and passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Garrettnesia's national animal is the Bunny Rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Garrettnesia is ranked 97,761st in the world and 1st in The Byrickian Archipeligo for Most Developed, scoring 55.82 on the Human Development Index.
