The Federated Kingdom of Gordano and Lysandus is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Constantine with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, hatred of cheese, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.746 billion Gordanian-Lysandians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Portishead. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Gordano and Lysandusian economy, worth 793 trillion Crowns a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 138,070 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

War criminals are given full state funerals, meat prices are soaring as the farming industry struggle under government-imposed restrictions, a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Gordano and Lysandusian politicians, and nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gordano and Lysandus's national animal is the Isthmus falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Gordano and Lysandus is ranked 53,480th in the world and 1st in Coalition for Global Liberty for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 2.14 Bank.
