The Dictatorship of Gambierland is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 809 million Gambierlandians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gambier. The average income tax rate is 81.0%.

The powerhouse Gambierlandian economy, worth 80.5 trillion rubles a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 99,558 rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Recent events have left citizens both shaken and stirred, an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, and corporations have to consult a fifty-page "sanctions spreadsheet" to determine which countries they are allowed to do business with. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gambierland's national animal is the parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Gambierland is ranked 82,139th in the world and 3,241st in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 4.55 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
