The Womyn's Paradise of Gynostan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Sister Number One with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.834 billion Gynos are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — prioritizes Defense, although Environment and Law & Order are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Femininegrad. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Gyno economy, worth an astonishing 15,363 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is a breathtaking 703,642 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voodoo economists believe that feeding criminals to volcanoes will bring untold riches to Gynostan, the intelligence community is playing 4-D chess with an imaginary spy network, 4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', and families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gynostan's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Goddess Worship.

Gynostan is ranked 221,138th in the world and 5th in Pontbridge Islands for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -6271.66 on the Hayek Index.
