The Rogue Nation of Gansolandia is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, complete lack of prisons, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.852 billion Gansos 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Honktown. The average income tax rate is 81.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Ganso economy, worth 109 trillion ducks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving and Book Publishing. Average income is 59,182 ducks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Worried-looking neonatal nurses are being deployed in place of SWAT teams during dangerous drug busts, Ganso politics is literally a blood sport, raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing, and high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gansolandia's national animal is the goose, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Gansolandia is ranked 264,668th in the world and 392nd in Refugia for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -14.8 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
