The Holy Republic of Gebidia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Marcus Oritas with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.46 billion Gebidians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Social Welfare and Religion & Spirituality are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arvoria. The average income tax rate is 75%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Gebidia's radio stations. Crime is totally unknown. Gebidia's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, its national religion is Roman Catholicism, and its currency is the Denalm.

Gebidia is ranked 67th in Coalition of Catholic States and 93,780th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -10 on the Hayek Index.
