The Commonwealth of Glen-Rhodes is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lilika Nikolopoulou with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 27.239 billion Rhodesians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grand Port. The average income tax rate is 50.3%.

The all-consuming Rhodesian economy, worth a remarkable 3,501 trillion Glen-Rhodes Dollars a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 128,547 Glen-Rhodes Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

A recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, no one knows how to tie a reef knot, and the nation's leading climatologists are investigating animal flatulence in efforts to reduce methane emissions. Crime is totally unknown. Glen-Rhodes's national animal is the Mute Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the United Church of Rhodes.

Glen-Rhodes is ranked 32,920th in the world and 2nd in Pencil Sharpeners Puppet Storage for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 5.11 Bank.
