The Commonwealth of States of Glory is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The President with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.322 billion Warriors of Glory have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Glory City. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Glorious economy, worth a remarkable 1,019 trillion Crookas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 122,479 Crookas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, States of Glory's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, formerly fertile fields are being leached dry of nutrients by intensive farming, and wealthy students ride to school past mendicant dropouts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. States of Glory's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

States of Glory is ranked 186,095th in the world and 8,278th in the West Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -12.54 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
