The Federal Republic of Glaswegistan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Party with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, public floggings, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 17.198 billion Glaswegistani's are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The large, liberal, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Social Policy, Education, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Glasgow. The average income tax rate is 83.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Glaswegistani economy, worth a remarkable 2,475 trillion Shillings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 143,934 Shillings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Glaswegistan's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, the arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place, men stare at wall-pictures of The Party's face when they visit public urinals, and historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism. Crime is totally unknown. Glaswegistan's national animal is the Mammoth, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Glaswegistan is ranked 12,597th in the world and 353rd in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 99 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
