The Republic of Gibsby is a small, safe nation, notable for its enforced nudity and suspicion of poets. The democratic population of 29 million Gibsbyians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 22.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Gibsbyian economy, worth 1.14 trillion Gibsan Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Retail, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 39,226 Gibsan Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Public nudity is compulsory, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', and candidates make campaign speeches at the funerals of former rivals. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gibsby's national animal is the Cheetah.

Gibsby is ranked 60,977th in the world and 59th in The Free Nations Region for Most Politically Free, scoring 76.67 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
