The Vamachara Gaṇarajya of Ganapatyadesh is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Subramanya Chandrashekar with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ritual sacrifices, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.277 billion Ganapatyadeshis 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mahishapura. The average income tax rate is 24.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ganapatyadeshi economy, worth 124 trillion pagodas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 97,551 pagodas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", the "fire department" is often called to remove offensive religious texts, orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, and the dartboard at the Ganapatyadeshi Cancer Research Charity bears a picture of Subramanya Chandrashekar's face. Crime is moderate. Ganapatyadesh's national animal is the elephant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Uchchhishta Ganapatya.

Ganapatyadesh is ranked 75,925th in the world and 34th in Pecan Sandies for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 155,880 Standard Monetary Units.
