The Technocracy United Kingdom of Girania is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by John Lupinssen VII with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, infamous sell-swords, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 9.031 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. The average income tax rate is 33.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Giranian economy, worth a remarkable 3,877 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 frequent. Average income is an amazing 429,308 Gears, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

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 moderate, 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 244,308th in the world and 46th in Novo Brasil for Best Weather, with -460 Meters Of Sunlight.
