The Prosaic Union of Gnejs is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Tangeus Oxwald with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.893 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, socially-minded, 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 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Gnejsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,803 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 188,223 Leaves, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Thomas the Spank Engine is the most popular and controversial children's show in the nation, future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, public projects are synonymous with yawn-inducing conformity, and abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals. 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 150,536th in the world and 105th in International Democratic Union for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -22.36 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
