The Empire of Gaberel is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Jin with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 16.155 billion Gaberelians 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, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gaberel City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Gaberelian economy, worth an astonishing 14,063 trillion galecs 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, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 a breathtaking 870,505 galecs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens have reported seeing strange rays of light emanating from the moon, a citizen who thinks a slave is a deadbeat is entitled to make the descriptor literally true, Air Gaberel is rumored to receive more government funding than the Gaberelian Air Force, and more sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people. Crime is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Gaberel's national animal is the panther, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Gaberel is ranked 220,706th in the world and 7,856th in Lazarus for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -1574.09 on the Hayek Index.
