The Commonwealth of Genlann is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and lack of airports. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 7.603 billion Genlannians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taprobana. The average income tax rate is 57.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Genlannian economy, worth a remarkable 2,135 trillion Pfennigs a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Tourism, Gambling, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 280,836 Pfennigs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Amorous nobles always bring the same disappointing gift to weddings, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, and teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Genlann's national animal is the Rainbow Dash, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pastafarianism.

Genlann is ranked 16,897th in the world and 585th in the Rejected Realms for Most Politically Free, scoring 81.33 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
