The Social Democracy of Gardavasque is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Biff Snollygoster with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, digital currency, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.262 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eternity. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 55.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Gardavascan economy, worth 355 trillion Yescas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 109,024 Yescas, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

Commuters often break into synchronised para-para dancing for no reason at all, the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, and factory workers offered 20-hour shifts are expected to thank their bosses for the wonderful opportunity. Crime is totally unknown. Gardavasque's national animal is the Banshee Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Gardavasque is ranked 52,875th in the world and 68th in International Democratic Union for Highest Poor Incomes, with 34,834.78 Standard Monetary Units.
