The Anglo-Dutch Commonwealth of The GIU is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Vicereine Emelia Aberdeen with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.068 billion Afrikaners 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pretoria. The average income tax rate is 78.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Afrikaner economy, worth 470 trillion British Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 153,504 British Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens sell their moldy bread as homemade penicillin, major cities are suffering under water rationing, any girl that shows an interest in Lego is pressured to study engineering, and suspicious locals close their doors leaving tourists to suffer the elements by themselves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The GIU's national animal is the Gazelle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is State Protestantism.

The GIU is ranked 29,217th in the world and 16th in Union of Liberal Nations for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 168.33 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
