The Garlic Stench of Garlenph is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Garlic Guy with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.637 billion Garlic Bulbs enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Micro Nation City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.2%.

The strong Garlic Bulb economy, worth 94.6 trillion coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 57,805 coins, with the richest citizens earning 9.2 times as much as the poorest.

Wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, Garlic Guy has just been declared ruler of Garlenph in an international press conference, fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal, and Garlicism has been named as Garlenph's national religion. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Garlenph's national animal is the monster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Garlicism.

Garlenph is ranked 48,072nd in the world and 1st in United Essentan nations for Most Pro-Market, scoring 57.43 on the Rand Index.
