The Republic of Glanst is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Plato with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 958 million Glanstonians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athens. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Glanstian economy, worth 185 trillion Atoms a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 193,207 Atoms, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,287,409 per year while the poor average 11,022, a ratio of 116 to 1.

The government baselessly accuses foreign dignitaries of being assassins, life expectancy is way down but posthuman perfectionism is way up, 9 out of 10 consumers think that vitamins can cure cancer, and the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Glanst's national animal is the mouse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Glanst is ranked 118,654th in the world and 5,192nd in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 65.09 on the Hayek Index.
