The Technocracy United Kingdom of Girania is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by John Lupinssen VII with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, otherworldly petting zoo, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 7.405 billion Giranians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, 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 20.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Giranian economy, worth a remarkable 3,157 trillion Gears a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 426,444 Gears, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,258,637 per year while the poor average 113,624, a ratio of 11.1 to 1.

On graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons, college-level writing classes are taught by undergraduate editors of the school newspaper, business leaders commend the government for enacting an emissions reduction strategy that reduces no Giranian emissions at all, and glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town. 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 2,491st in the world and 8th in Novo Brasil for Most Developed, scoring 97.1 on the Human Development Index.
