The Congressional Republic of The Gelseen Hegemony is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Spears with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, pith helmet sales, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 8.785 billion Gelseens are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rouvenor. The average income tax rate is 19.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Gelseen Hegemonyian economy, worth a remarkable 3,658 trillion Aurums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 416,472 Aurums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, President Spears's webseries about the alleged hauntings of Rouvenor generates millions of views, Air The Gelseen Hegemony is rumored to receive more government funding than the Gelseen Hegemonyian Air Force, and unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount Rouvenor make great practice for foreign snipers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Gelseen Hegemony's national animal is the Red Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Starship Manufacture.

The Gelseen Hegemony is ranked 722nd in the world and 21st in Osiris for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 39,113.36 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
