The Grandes' Duchy of Giscuambourg is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by HRH the Grande Duke Seymour X with an even hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working population of 9.574 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 78%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Politicians have to be granted day-release from prison to speak on bills, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, and invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie. 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 25th in Gay and 16,389th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 11 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
