The Prosaic Union of Gnejs is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Tangeus Oxwald with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, state-planned economy, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.488 billion Gnejsians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Kejm. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Gnejsian economy, worth a remarkable 3,499 trillion Leaves a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 189,296 Leaves, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Gnejs's radio stations, Port Kejm spends billions upgrading public transport, government fact-checkers use surprising amounts of high explosive, and Gnejs is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. Crime is totally unknown. Gnejs's national animal is the mallard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Amor Fati.

Gnejs is ranked 245,631st in the world and 133rd in International Democratic Union for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -44.68 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
