The Crony Republic of Genistan is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Master Zodiac with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, triple-decker prams, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.169 billion Genistanians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Subterropolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Genistanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,860 trillion Cides a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 281,303 Cides, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,131,413 per year while the poor average 46,806, a ratio of 24.2 to 1.

Flatulent people are left to die of cancer at the end of hospital waiting lists, more and more people are signing up for the government party, government agents scour baking periodicals for subversive recipes, and burgers often list "miscellaneous meats" in their ingredients. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Genistan's national animal is the Anaconda, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Bathorism.

Genistan is ranked 8,323rd in the world and 59th in Europeia for Most Devout, with 2,258.71 Prayers Per Hour.
