The Borderlands of Giant Redwoods is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Oberon with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, avowedly heterosexual populace, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.132 billion Giant Redwoodsians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amber. The average income tax rate is 83.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Giant Redwoodsian economy, worth 865 trillion Trumps a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 209,572 Trumps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, the nation has recently been attributed to the funding of terrorist organisations, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, and strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Giant Redwoods's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Way of the Shaddows.

Giant Redwoods is ranked 177,570th in the world and 318th in Thaecia for Most Avoided, scoring 0.38 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
