The Technocracy United Kingdom of Girania is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by John Lupinssen VII with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 13.621 billion Giranians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Faenor. The average income tax rate is 43.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Giranian economy, worth a remarkable 5,979 trillion Gears a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 438,966 Gears, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

On graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons, college-level writing classes are taught by undergraduate editors of the school newspaper, business leaders commend the government for enacting an emissions reduction strategy that reduces no Giranian emissions at all, and glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town. Crime is well under control. Girania's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Alphanism.

Girania is ranked 1,050th in the world and 4th in Novo Brasil for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 246,260.08 Standard Monetary Units.
