The Republic of Geeel is a small, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 40 million Geeelians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Welfare, although Education, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. The average income tax rate is 38.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Geeelian economy, worth 1.44 trillion Fixxes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 36,064 Fixxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A new "thought police" branch is being developed, skateparks can be found in every city, the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan, and 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Geeel's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Geeel is ranked 193,681st in the world and 7th in Selene for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 48.6 Whatever.
