The Armed Republic of Givilia is a small, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 40 million Givilians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Public Transport. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Givilian economy, worth 1.35 trillion Rating points a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 33,668 Rating points, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead", Givilians believe manners maketh the leader, war criminals are given full state funerals, and dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Givilia's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Givilia is ranked 268,723rd in the world and 77th in Lily for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 42,379 Standard Monetary Units.
