The Empire of Ganiax is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 42.64 billion Ganiaxians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ganiaxian economy, worth a remarkable 8,439 trillion Xardas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 197,933 Xardas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Most ambassadors from Ganiax retire only a few years after being appointed, the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, dreams of entering the Super League have been relegated to the history books, and foreign leaders are advising that Leader's letters must have gotten lost in the mail. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ganiax's national animal is the Stalker, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ganiax is ranked 3,331st in the world and 121st in Balder for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 21,507.5 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
