The Commonwealth of Glen-Rhodes is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lilika Nikolopoulou with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 20.841 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 49.7%.

The all-consuming Rhodesian economy, worth a remarkable 2,694 trillion Glen-Rhodes Dollars a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 129,305 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 148,028th in the world and 6,136th in the South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -7.63 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
