The Most Serene Republic of Gymnostan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Archimedes D'Siracusa with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and enforced nudity. The democratic, humorless population of 23.793 billion Gymnostanis are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Godiva City. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Gymnostani economy, worth a remarkable 1,619 trillion verduroes a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 68,071 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 63,732nd in the world and 1,506th in the South Pacific for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 1,949.19 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
