The Grand Republic of Gwerncyned is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, rampant corporate plagiarism, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.734 billion Gwerncynedians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nantmel. The average income tax rate is 89.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Gwerncynedian economy, worth 180 trillion Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 104,266 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount Nantmel make great practice for foreign snipers, adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gwerncyned's national animal is the Rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gwerncyned is ranked 71,824th in the world and 15th in Empire of Great Britain for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,901.08 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
