The Democratic Republic of Glendar is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 442 million Glendarians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Glendarian economy, worth 14.7 trillion Glens a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is dominated by the Cheese Exports industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 33,318 Glens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Lavish state dinners in Glendar City are the state's leading budgetary expenditure, Glendar has designated Glendar City as its capital city, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and the government spends its days financing the delocalisation of its own economy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Glendar's national animal is the Horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Glendar is ranked 225,396th in the world and 6,417th in Balder for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 54,234 Standard Monetary Units.
