The Galactic Empire of Gliese Minor is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Supreme Chancellor Xterus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, cynical population of 980 million Gliese Minorians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gliese 581d. The average income tax rate is 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Gliese Minorian economy, worth 63.5 trillion nasarites a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 64,789 nasarites, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard, flatulent people are left to die of cancer at the end of hospital waiting lists, the police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime, and the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Gliese Minor after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gliese Minor's national animal is the tassanos, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gliese Minor is ranked 149,440th in the world and 7,674th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -6.63 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
