The Democratic States of Gidonia is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its smutty television, daily referendums, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 530 million Gidonians 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, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sandrevia. The average income tax rate is 63.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gidonian economy, worth 51.2 trillion Lennies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 96,585 Lennies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, and incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables. Crime is totally unknown. Gidonia's national animal is the Elephant, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Gidonia is ranked 27,969th in the world and 705th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 104.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
