The Protectorate of Girelna is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Protector with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 4.713 billion Girelnans are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lords Port. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Girel economy, worth 678 trillion Silvermarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 143,941 Silvermarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors who mutter "Oh my God" often lose their medical license, sales of trenchcoats are on the rise, Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Girelna as a reminder of their "special relationship", and Lord Protector's iHouse is so intelligent that it manages its own social media accounts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Girelna's national animal is the Pangolin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Girelna is ranked 24,021st in the world and 108th in Forest for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 98.03 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
