The Crony Republic of Genistan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Master Zodiac with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, triple-decker prams, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.73 billion Genistanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Subterropolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Genistanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,414 trillion Cides a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 291,087 Cides, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,741,836 per year while the poor average 22,109, a ratio of 78.8 to 1.

The smell of napalm in the morning is usually alongside grilled Anaconda, loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly, the government is a law unto itself, and photos of picturesque coastal buildings are set against a backdrop of smokestacks and ship hulls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Genistan's national animal is the Anaconda, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Bathorism.

Genistan is ranked 1,108th in the world and 6th in Europeia for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 23,106.57 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
