The Republic of Gown Island is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, ban on automobiles, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.395 billion Gown Islandians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45.8%.

The very strong Gown Islandian economy, worth 105 trillion Euros a year, is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 75,712 Euros, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 219,905 per year while the poor average 20,633, a ratio of 10.7 to 1.

Space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", Leader has no checks and balances after the upper house was abolished, and executions often take hours as amateurs attempt to find veins. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gown Island's national animal is the Monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gown Island is ranked 239,468th in the world and 8,135th in Osiris for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -11.22 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
