The Kingdom of Garnbyen is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Undertaker with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, triple-decker prams, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.717 billion Garnbyenians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cemetery. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Garnbyenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,781 trillion Snacks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 204,414 Snacks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,160,895 per year while the poor average 17,560, a ratio of 66.1 to 1.

Adult unemployment is rising as available jobs are filled by young children, the nation refuses to provide international aid, bruised children are made to thank their bullies for the valuable life lessons, and the military has grudgingly released all top secret information in an effort for greater transparency. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Garnbyen's national animal is the Sexy Beast, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Garnbyen is ranked 292,476th in the world and 844th in 10000 Islands for Best Weather, with -748 meters of sunlight.
