The Free Land of Glastol is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, otherworldly petting zoo, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 931 million Glastolians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lassana. The average income tax rate is 10.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Glastolian economy, worth 116 trillion tofins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 124,712 tofins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Lassana's iconic yellow taxis are nowhere to be seen, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, corporate lawyers are switching careers to the more lucrative field of green politics, and the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Glastol's national animal is the Golden squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Glastol is ranked 255,092nd in the world and 6,728th in the West Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 8.04 Obesity Rate.
