The Kingdom of Gillenor is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by King Louis VII with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 8.353 billion Gillenorians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Osserheim. The average income tax rate is 81.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gillenorian economy, worth 803 trillion Crowns a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 96,234 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Leopard Dung" has been declared a national treasure, atheists on vacation find Protestanism's scriptures make useful doorstops, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, and adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gillenor's national animal is the Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestanism.

Gillenor is ranked 14,022nd in the world and 1st in Panessos for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 53.38 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
