The Country of Gliese Minor is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ryden O'Sullivan with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and digital currency. The compassionate population of 2.53 billion Gliese Minorians 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, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gliese 581d. The average income tax rate is 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Gliese Minorian economy, worth 265 trillion nasarites a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 105,088 nasarites, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Third world countries are rich in "I Love Gliese 581d" t-shirts, new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, delivery truck companies use hospital parking lots to store 16-wheelers, and all-natural foods are becoming a major fad. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gliese Minor's national animal is the tassanos, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Airgead.

Gliese Minor is ranked 33,996th in the world and 1,077th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 434.16356241292 Days.
