The Republic of The Gideon Islands is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 412 million Gideon Islanders 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Paul. The average income tax rate is 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Gideon Islander economy, worth 36.3 trillion United States Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 88,101 United States Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Private law firms are unheard of, airplane passenger seat sizes and ticket prices are both first-class, rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million United States Dollars of property damage, and dinner parties often end in politically charged fist fights. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Gideon Islands's national animal is the Seagull, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Gideon Islands is ranked 37,375th in the world and 44th in The Social Liberal Union for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 5,487.43 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
