The Social Democracy of Gardavasque is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Biff Snollygoster with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.721 billion Gardavascans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eternity. The average income tax rate is 57.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gardavascan economy, worth 419 trillion Yescas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 112,751 Yescas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", the government has implemented minimum wage laws, party affiliation is just as irrelevant as campaign promises, and stylish juvenile delinquents are highly overrepresented in fatal motorcycle accidents. Crime is totally unknown. Gardavasque's national animal is the Banshee Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Love.

Gardavasque is ranked 51,317th in the world and 19th in International Democratic Union for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3,141.29 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
