The Grand Republic of Gwerncyned is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.952 billion Gwerncynedians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fach. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Gwerncynedian economy, worth 513 trillion Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 103,706 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Transgender and agender are on the education agenda, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, and an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gwerncyned's national animal is the Rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gwerncyned is ranked 105,372nd in the world and 87th in Empire of Great Britain for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 116,801 Standard Monetary Units.
