The Julia Gillard of Gillardium is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Julia Gillard with an even hand, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The humorless population of 2.397 billion Gillardians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Industry, with Defense, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canberra. The average income tax rate is 34.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gillardiumian economy, worth 417 trillion dollars 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 a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. 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 impressive 174,050 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, and fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Gillardium's national animal is the Kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is DeVinism.

Gillardium is ranked 29,968th in the world and 62nd in United Kingdom for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 3,242.96 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
