The Confederacy of Glorystic is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 749 million Glorysticians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gloristica. The average income tax rate is 36.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Glorystician economy, worth 90.2 trillion Crystal Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 120,456 Crystal Coins, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Supermarket milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets, nuclear submarines have been deployed to protect the nation's banana supply, the nation's soldiers sleep four to a bed in order to use space economically, and 'Police Academy 36' and 'Sharknados On A Plane' are vying for top spot at the box-office. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Glorystic's national animal is the Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Glorystic is ranked 38,253rd in the world and 1,798th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 75.43 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
