The Green Otter's State of Garbelia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Lutra Otto with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.12 billion Garbeli are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Garvida. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Garbelery economy, worth 109 trillion CryptoGarbels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming. Average income is 97,665 CryptoGarbels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, Lutra Otto panders to nontraditional families, Lutra Otto's speeches are beloved by insomniacs, and the "fire department" is often called to remove offensive religious texts. Crime is totally unknown. Garbelia's national animal is the Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Lutrianism.

Garbelia is ranked 236,942nd in the world and 395th in Forest for Most Armed, with 0.15 Weapons Per Person.
