The Confederacy of Geisler is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mr Geisler with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 21.833 billion Geislerians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gotham City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Geislerian economy, worth a remarkable 9,814 trillion Marbles a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 449,517 Marbles, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 times as much as the poorest.

Geislerian politicians are often described as having more style than substance, every politician claims to be at least 1% Native Geislerian, internet sites are legally unable to stop their users from posting pornography, and members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Geisler's national animal is the Werewolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Geisler is ranked 156th in the world and 7th in Osiris for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 22,292.52 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
