The Republic of Gliesetonia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Sir Evan Pickering with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 4.409 billion Gliesetonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gliese City. The average income tax rate is 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gliesetonian economy, worth 594 trillion Gliese Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 134,918 Gliese Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government fact-checkers use surprising amounts of high explosive, the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and parents often leave their kids in the car while they attend mindfulness meditation sessions. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gliesetonia's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Gliesetonia is ranked 28,497th in the world and 232nd in Europe for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,358.91 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
