The Unitary Empire of Genovini is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Torris Pelham with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.38 billion Genovinians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Viléro. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Genovinian economy, worth 200 trillion Genovis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 145,320 Genovis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents are shocked to find out that having kids costs money, back-alley circumcision clinics are popping up all over the nation, government officials across Genovini are being "encouraged" to adopt Genovinian Lions to set an example for the populace, and the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Genovini's national animal is the Genovinian Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Liontology.

Genovini is ranked 99,461st in the world and 81st in Karma for Most Secular, with 17.74 Atheism Rate.
