The Community of Gemmena is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by A good penguin with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, daily referendums, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.602 billion Gemmenans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Penguin Valley. The average income tax rate is 68.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Gemmemmenans economy, worth 104 trillion gems a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 65,200 gems, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government struggles to keep up with the endless list of petrol disasters, airport security is provided by private companies, one does not simply walk into the tundra, and the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gemmena's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Gemmena is ranked 28,488th in the world and 919th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,582.52 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
