The Armed Republic of The Geraldic Islands is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory military service, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 311 million Geraldics are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gerald City. The average income tax rate is 24.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Geraldic economy, worth 30.3 trillion Imperial Juwels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 97,271 Imperial Juwels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, government agents stalk the aisles of grocery stores for out-of-stock medications, there is no other place with more lab coats per square mile than former houses of worship, and the nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Geraldic Islands's national animal is the Wild Gerald.

The Geraldic Islands is ranked 107,425th in the world and 1,032nd in 10000 Islands for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 1,290.45 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
