The People's Republic of Technocraticofgivus is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 343 million Technocraticofgivusians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Administration, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Technocraticofgivusian economy, worth 43.0 trillion gimmeses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 125,456 gimmeses, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

The nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners, the morbidly obese often sell stock options on their own corpses, rocket scientists spend more time designing slide shows than launching rockets, and Ollie the Oiled Seal welcomes throngs of tourists to the newly opened Oil Oasis Water Park. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Technocraticofgivus's national animal is the jimmy neutron, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Technocraticofgivus is ranked 187,233rd in the world and 8,249th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 86.46 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
