The Mega Corporation of Gifty is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Chief Executive Officer Dee with an iron fist, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, rampant corporate plagiarism, and compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.848 billion Giftyians 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 prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prima Gifta. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 61.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Giftyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,461 trillion Union Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 213,427 Union Credits, with the richest citizens earning 9.7 times as much as the poorest.

Cities are engulfed by smog, oil rigs in winter are heated by contained oil slick fires, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, and extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gifty's national animal is the Ornithopter, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Gifty is ranked 253,631st in the world and 333rd in Thaecia for Least Corrupt Governments, with 20.38 percentage of bribes refused.
