The Technocratic United Kingdom of Girania is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by John Lupinssen VII with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.452 billion Giranians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, pro-business government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Faenor. The average income tax rate is 6.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Giranian economy, worth a remarkable 1,087 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 315,177 Gears, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

A National Academy regulates grammar and usage, the paparazzi publicize Royal scandals with the utmost delight, the government is lending a hand to private industry, and saying "don't do anything that John Lupinssen VII wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal. Crime is totally unknown. 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 50,070th in the world and 33rd in Novo Brasil for Largest Populations, with 3.45 billion Capita.
