The Democratic Republic of Glorsto is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 804 million Glorstites enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 80.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Glorstoan economy, worth 27.1 trillion Glories a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 33,735 Glories, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Education is transforming people into first-rate snobs, sex changes are routinely performed at Glorsto's hospitals, adults pretending to be teenage girls claim to have wholesome motives, and orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Glorsto's national animal is the Sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Glorsto is ranked 206,635th in the world and 387th in Conch Kingdom for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -6.1 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
