The Empire of Ghant is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Nathan IV and Empress Sophia with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.57 billion Ghantar hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ghish. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ghantish economy, worth a remarkable 3,734 trillion Ghantmarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 256,325 Ghantmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, angry men scowl at each other across chess boards, and dinner parties often end in politically charged fist fights. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Ghant's national animal is the Great Auk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ghant is ranked 12,459th in the world and 7th in Gholgoth for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 1 Valid Endorsements.
