The Technocracy United Kingdom of Girania is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by John Lupinssen VII with a fair hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 5.597 billion Giranians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Faenor. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Giranian economy, worth a remarkable 2,309 trillion Gears a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 412,580 Gears, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,333,412 per year while the poor average 96,474, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.

Dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, John Lupinssen VII's handshakes with opposition leaders usually lead to thumb wars, health inspectors are seen eating black truffle fondue with their bottled water, and puppies given out free in marketing promotions are often tossed straight into the trash. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Girania's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Alphanism.

Girania is ranked 69,087th in the world and 22nd in Novo Brasil for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,222.94 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
