The Queen's State of Gilford is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 19.137 billion Gilfordians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.4%.

The very strong Gilfordian economy, worth 626 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. Average income is 32,712 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 222,405 per year while the poor average 1,757, a ratio of 126 to 1.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, voting is voluntary, military funding has been stripped back, and Gilford has designated Capital Heights as its capital city. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Gilford's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gilford is ranked 130,510th in the world and 6th in Lisbon for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring zero on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
