The Democratic States of Gaialand is a small, socially progressive nation, notable for its stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 26 million Gaialandians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 42.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The fragile Gaialandian economy, worth 758 billion golds a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 29,160 golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The World Democratic States Games have been won again by Gaialand as no other country cares enough to compete, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, and social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gaialand's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Gaialand is ranked 148,043rd in the world and 6,301st in the South Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 50.09 Workforce Participation Rate.
