The Empire of Gautania is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen PT with an even hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.93 billion Gautanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fernweh. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Gautanian economy, worth 77.7 trillion crowns a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 40,265 crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, eerie glow-in-the-dark cornfields give farmlands an uncanny appearance, and male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gautania's national animal is the Mute swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gautania is ranked 57,152nd in the world and 2,726th in The North Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 92.77 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
