The Federated Giraffe State of Giraffeton is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Professional Giraffe with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.437 billion Giraffetonians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Giraffeton City. The average income tax rate is 40.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Giraffetonian economy, worth 138 trillion Giraffereums a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 96,463 Giraffereums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A child's only Trickster Night scare is the sight of their parents dancing, life is short but human kindness is endless, foreign countries consider stepping on their grass to be a serious offense, and the nation's nuclear defence policy is to "turn the other cheek". 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 86,422nd in the world and 1st in The Giraffe Federation for Most Stationary, with 250.93579773432 days.
