The Republic of Gliesetonia is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sir Evan Pickering with a fair hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 997 million Gliesetonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gliese City. The average income tax rate is 69.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gliesetonian economy, worth 129 trillion Gliese Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 129,589 Gliese Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

History textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Gliesetonia as a reminder of their "special relationship", light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment, and burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 28,595th in the world and 61st in New Western Empire for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,261.72 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
