The Republic of The Gideon Islands is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 387 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 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Gideon Islander economy, worth 33.7 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 87,054 United States Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mandatory daycare is provided by the government, in the Beginning was the Word and the Word was "Pragmatism", Big Agriculture has the government by the nuts, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. 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 186,370th in the world and 161st in The Social Liberal Union for Most Extreme, scoring 10.46 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
