The Provisional Administration of Ghedeland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Interim Chairwoman Taeko Van Pels with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, strictly enforced bedtime, and enslaved workforce. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.416 billion Ghedelandians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kantora. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Ghedelandian economy, worth 928 trillion Samedi Francs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 210,329 Samedi Francs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 913,706 per year while the poor average 30,694, a ratio of 29.8 to 1.

The Coast Guard is pioneering a quixotic program to train fish, Ghedelandian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Kantora to enjoy their national art. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ghedeland's national animal is the Black Faced Seagull, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Voodoo.

Ghedeland is ranked 9,650th in the world and 22nd in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,697.97 Tourists Per Hour.
