The Social Democracy of Gardavasque is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Biff Snollygoster with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 1.939 billion Gardavascans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eternity. The average income tax rate is 66.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Gardavascan economy, worth 211 trillion Yescas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,953 Yescas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced, children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-Yesca charge on their phone bill, many suspect the government "doth protest too much" with their curiously specific denials of conspiracy theories, and sniffer dogs are trained to follow clouds of fruity-smelling vapor. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gardavasque's national animal is the Banshee Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Gardavasque is ranked 12,185th in the world and 40th in International Democratic Union for Most Cultured, scoring 101 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
