The Most Sovereign Republic of Garya is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Marshal Gary Burns with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.043 billion Garyans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Josephsburg. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Garyan economy, worth a remarkable 2,526 trillion Garyan Pounds a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Arms Manufacturing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,066 Garyan Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough, what goes down must come up, Marshal Gary Burns is emphatic that Garya's HDI is much higher than it seems (Garya has found 1 easter egg), and referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Garya's national animal is the Golden Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Garya Reformed Church.

Garya is ranked 11,503rd in the world and 194th in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 10,165.89 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
