The Lucky Space Age Kingdom of Gladinia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Jacklon Elsban I with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.226 billion Gladinians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Horizon City. The average income tax rate is 66.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gladinian economy, worth 242 trillion Zorbucks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,737 Zorbucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, foreign countries consider stepping on their grass to be a serious offense, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, and people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gladinia's national animal is the Overwieght Housecat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Garfieldism.

Gladinia is ranked 16,724th in the world and 640th in the Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,665.17 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
