The Empire of Ghant is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Nathan IV and Empress Sophia with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 17.846 billion Ghantar hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ghish. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ghantish economy, worth a remarkable 4,479 trillion Ghantmarks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 251,015 Ghantmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Ghantar refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns, ticket touts are blamed for the downfall of communism, military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, and the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Ghant's national animal is the Great Auk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ghant is ranked 2,487th in the world and 24th in Gholgoth for Highest Economic Output, with 4,479 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
