The Grandes' Duchy of Giscuambourg is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by HRH the Grande Duke Iohann I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 16.86 billion Giscuams are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Social Policy, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Giscuambourg. The average income tax rate is 57.4%.

The frighteningly efficient giscuam economy, worth a remarkable 2,448 trillion Giscuam Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 145,235 Giscuam Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The skeletons of lost tourists litter the ground of the Great Giscuam Desert, octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, cub scouts are being asked to hand in their woggles as the state withdraws funding for scouting, and breast milk is being redistributed from each according to their ability to each according to their need. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Giscuambourg's national animal is the Giscuam Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Giscuambourg is ranked 3,111th in the world and 35th in Gay for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 81.38 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
