The Mega Corporation of Gifty is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Executive President Devoy with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.182 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, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, 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 45.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Giftyian economy, worth 658 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, 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 157,545 Union Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Blue sky thinkers are reminded that the firmament is actually more of a grey-ish colour, teenagers haven't been seen outdoors since the nation reconnected to the Internet, cubicles often double as graves as citizens literally work themselves to death, and "Surfin' MCG" is a hit. 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 56,762nd in the world and 45th in Thaecia for Most Armed, with 0.91 Weapons Per Person.
