The Republic of Gliesetonia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Sir Evan Pickering with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 4.856 billion Gliesetonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gliese City. The average income tax rate is 88.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gliesetonian economy, worth 733 trillion Gliens a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 151,133 Gliens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, a sledgehammer and a spray can are seen as the default tools of political debate, and hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gliesetonia's national animal is the Capybara, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Gliesetonia is ranked 8,146th in the world and 119th in Europe for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 5,395.81 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
