The Holy Republic of Gebidia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Marcus Oritas with a fair hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, free-roaming dinosaurs, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.711 billion Gebidians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, with Welfare, Environment, and Industry also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Administration receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arvoria. The average income tax rate is 42.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gebidian economy, worth a remarkable 2,318 trillion Denalms a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 157,602 Denalms, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, church and state are inseparable in their influence on education, and gay couples have to travel to Brancaland to find a church that will actually let them wed. Crime is totally unknown. Gebidia's national animal is the Fork Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Gebidia is ranked 103,203rd in the world and 15th in Coalition of Catholic States for Most Authoritarian, with 0.14 Stalins.
