The Joyous Land of Geneviev is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The People with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.49 billion Genevievians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Peregrine. The average income tax rate is 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Genevievian economy, worth 568 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. Average income is 87,672 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Geneviev's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Geneviev is ranked 9,436th in the world and 7th in Union of Christian Nations for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 3,373.53 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
