The Social Democracy of Gardavasque is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Biff Snollygoster with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.51 billion Gardavascans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eternity. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 56.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Gardavascan economy, worth 391 trillion Yescas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 111,487 Yescas, with the richest citizens earning 8.0 times as much as the poorest.

Military training in Gardavasque emphasizes the tactical advantages of stabbing backs, terrified neighbors cower behind concertina wire and arrow loops, swarms of present-laden delivery drones blot out the sun before major holidays, and foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best. Crime is totally unknown. Gardavasque's national animal is the Banshee Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Diversity.

Gardavasque is ranked 44,948th in the world and 17th in International Democratic Union for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3,513.03 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
