The Commonwealth of Giraffeton is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its digital currency, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 224 million Giraffetonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 26.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Giraffetonian economy, worth 18.7 trillion Giraffereums a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 83,519 Giraffereums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, and crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Giraffeton's national animal is the Giraffe, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Giraffeton is ranked 12,699th in the world and 1st in The Giraffe Federation for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 9,439.1 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
