The Galactic Empire of Gliese Minor is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Supreme Chancellor Xterus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, cynical population of 928 million Gliese Minorians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gliese 581d. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Gliese Minorian economy, worth 57.1 trillion nasarites a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,525 nasarites, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The banshee wail foretells skies of death, anyone who sneezes at border crossings is turned away, Maxtopians are both starving and giddy after the Gliese Minorian military unleashed its biological weapons, and Supreme Chancellor Xterus often plays real life games of Tower Defense against hordes of angry villagers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gliese Minor's national animal is the tassanos, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gliese Minor is ranked 38,769th in the world and 1,846th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 61.68 on the Human Development Index.
