The Safe Haven of LGBT Equality is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Saint Nick with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cheerful population of 18.641 billion Gays enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The North Pole. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Gay economy, worth a remarkable 4,635 trillion Irish gold coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 248,685 Irish gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign converts are illuminated by both missionaries and helicopter searchlights, the skeletons of lost tourists litter the ground of the Great Gay Desert, ad hoc militias patrol the streets in an effort to control rampant crime, and clergy never mention brand names for fear of losing their government subsidies. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. LGBT Equality's national animal is the reindeer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Naughty or Niceism.

LGBT Equality is ranked 116,408th in the world and 111th in Gay for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.17 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
