The Freehold of Ghardaq is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Archon Vir vos Pikreon with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 4.911 billion Ghardaqis have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rihontazma. The average income tax rate is 52.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Ghardaqi economy, worth 378 trillion kamas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 77,075 kamas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, most kama coins are riddled with bite marks, blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic, and the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ghardaq's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Vezkelios.

Ghardaq is ranked 65,105th in the world and 4th in Torrezon for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 2,449.04 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
