The Arab Socialist Union of Giunti is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Caspar Heinig with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.412 billion Giuntians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Administration, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gaunt. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.4%.

The powerhouse Giuntian economy, worth 302 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 88,569 bitcoins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 356,230 per year while the poor average 14,737, a ratio of 24.2 to 1.

Vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Giuntian mussels the biggest in Oneid, college-level writing classes are taught by undergraduate editors of the school newspaper, the people are famous throughout the region for their perfect yellow teeth, and politicians' financial records are locked up tighter than the nation's bitcoin reserves. Crime is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Giunti's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Islam.

Giunti is ranked 36,005th in the world and 97th in Oneid for Most Extreme, scoring 31.28 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
