The Grandes' Duchy of Giscuambourg is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by HRH the Grande Duke Seymour X with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working population of 9.269 billion Giscuambourgers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Giscuambourg. The average income tax rate is 77%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Discarded pennies litter the streets, the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, citizens are more concerned about voting for Big Brother contestants than politicians, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Giscuambourg's national animal is the Giscuambourger Weasel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Giscuambourger Dollar.

Giscuambourg is ranked 21st in Gay and 3,880th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 66 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
