The Democratic States of Gidonia is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Deon with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 942 million Gidonians 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, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sandrevia. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gidonian economy, worth 103 trillion Lennies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Retail. Average income is an impressive 109,397 Lennies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and foreign nations often blame poverty and terrorism on Gidonian selfishness. Crime is totally unknown. Gidonia's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gidonia is ranked 78,016th in the world and 2,531st in the South Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 2,452.99 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
