The Kingdom of Geografika is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ératosthène Chalumeau with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 23.142 billion Geografikans 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 tiny, corrupt, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Education, Defense, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of De Leon Springs. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.3%.

The very strong Geografik economy, worth 790 trillion geos a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 34,154 geos, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 97,368 per year while the poor average 9,553, a ratio of 10.2 to 1.

Directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use De Leon Springs as a backdrop, people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns, schoolboys trained in chivalry are encouraged to duel other boys for a maiden's hand, and children are often punished for the sins of the fathers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Geografika's national animal is the human, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Zany Madcap Humour.

Geografika is ranked 139,595th in the world and 55th in Florida for Most Income Equality, scoring 9.81 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
