The Federal Republic of Girkmand is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Gerald Webb with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 4.242 billion Girkmandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Girk. The average income tax rate is 48.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Girkmandian economy, worth 549 trillion FRG dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 129,462 FRG dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Young people crowd pizza parlors praying to 'The Supreme Pizza, His Immaculate Munchiness', traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, and therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Girkmand's national animal is the gecko, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secularism.

Girkmand is ranked 112,093rd in the world and 62nd in Eurth for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 8.83 on the Hayek Index.
