The Grandes' Duchy of Giscuambourg is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by HRH the Grande Duke Seymour X with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, unlimited-speed roads, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working population of 10.387 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.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Giscuambourg. The average income tax rate is 27.7%.

The all-consuming Giscuambourger economy, worth a remarkable 1,445 trillion Giscuambourger Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 139,169 Giscuambourger Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, long arduous trials are held for the most trivial of offences, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime is totally unknown. Giscuambourg's national animal is the Giscuambourger Weasel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Giscuambourg is ranked 154th in Gay and 107,790th in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -5 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
