The Democratic Republic of Garrettnesia is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 850 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 70.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Garrettnesian economy, worth 24.1 trillion Glibnorts a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 28,381 Glibnorts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, voting is voluntary, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, and the Garrettnesian Babysitters Club has proven to be a huge relief to stressed-out parents across the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 138,285th in the world and 1st in The Byrickian Archipeligo for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 71.88 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
