The Most Serene Republic of Gymnostan is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Archimedes D'Siracusa with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic, humorless population of 17.034 billion Gymnostanis love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Godiva City. The average income tax rate is 82.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Gymnostani economy, worth 935 trillion verduroes a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 54,913 verduroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, homophobia is off the menu, the sanitised and dull music festivals of Gymnostan are famed for their reasonable volume levels, and soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gymnostan's national animal is the Gymnostani Mastiff, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Naturism.

Gymnostan is ranked 50,294th in the world and 2,435th in the South Pacific for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 43.68 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
