The People's Republic of Gullyslanarmaing is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory vegetarianism, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.089 billion Gullyslanarmaingians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Gullyslanarmaingian economy, worth 441 trillion credits 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 107,938 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Traveller camps regularly block five-lane superhighways, increasing inclusiveness is a sign of the times, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gullyslanarmaing's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Gullyslanarmaing is ranked 270,159th in the world and 342nd in The Free Nations Region for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -18.57 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
