The Womyn's Paradise of Gynostan is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Sister Number One with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, state-planned economy, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.799 billion Gynos 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — prioritizes Defense, with Environment and Law & Order also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Femininegrad. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Gyno economy, worth an astonishing 11,658 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is a breathtaking 588,828 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet, the explosive fireball of the disintegrating space shuttle has devastated Cape Gynostan, and foreign leaders who don't applaud Sister Number One's speeches are regarded as enemies of Gynostan. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gynostan's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Goddess Worship.

Gynostan is ranked 169,238th in the world and 5th in Pontbridge Islands for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -1147.31 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
