The People's Republic of Geckos with Shades is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its daily referendums, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 535 million Geckos with Shades enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crest City. The average income tax rate is 77.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped a Gecko with Shades economy, worth 16.2 trillion Crickets 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 Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 30,298 Crickets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sex changes are routinely performed at Geckos with Shades's hospitals, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", dubiously qualified East Lebatuckese doctors prescribe ice baths as a treatment for pneumonia, and the Fashion Channel can only be viewed on widescreen TVs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Geckos with Shades's national animal is the Geico Gecko, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Geckos with Shades is ranked 131,930th in the world and 1st in Gecko Haven for Most Primitive, scoring -54.77 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
