The Technocracy United Kingdom of Girania is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by John Lupinssen VII with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 4.542 billion Giranians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Faenor. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Giranian economy, worth a remarkable 1,667 trillion Gears a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 367,164 Gears, with the richest citizens earning 9.0 times as much as the poorest.

Soldiers are equipped with multi-million Gear battlesuits, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, students in Girania's schools rarely attend their classes, and foreign leaders with unpaid parking tickets are often refused entry. Crime is almost non-existent. Girania's national animal is the Tropical Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Alphanism.

Girania is ranked 20,415th in the world and 19th in Novo Brasil for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 3,208.14 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
