The Empire of Garaipena is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 549 million Garaipenans 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Garaipenan economy, worth 30.9 trillion rupees a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 56,311 rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, and colleges adhere to rigid ethnic quotas for admissions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Garaipena's national animal is the budgie, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Garaipena is ranked 187,749th in the world and 7,556th in The East Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.68 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
