The Mega Corporation of Gifty is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Executive President Devoy with an iron fist, and renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, sprawling nuclear power plants, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.225 billion Giftyians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prima Gifta. The average income tax rate is 45.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Giftyian economy, worth 668 trillion Union Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 158,283 Union Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Stews often contain used tissues and pocket fluff, the nation's police officers are famously miserable-looking, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, and the government considers it a sacred duty to video bikini-clad beach swimmers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gifty's national animal is the Ornithopter, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Gifty is ranked 2,694th in the world and 6th in Thaecia for Most Secular, with 99.04 Atheism Rate.
