The Empire of Socialist Gelderland is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Tsar William XIV with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, otherworldly petting zoo, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 921 million Gelderlandians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novamagus. The average income tax rate is 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gelderlandian economy, worth 132 trillion Guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 143,579 Guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bands of adventurers rove the countryside searching for monsters, the government is paving paradises to put up parking lots, using "inspect element" is grounds for espionage charges, and animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist Gelderland's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Socialist Gelderland is ranked 94,727th in the world and 26th in Callista for Highest Economic Output, with 132 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
