The Cheese Loving Monarchy of Gabingston is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Spaghet II with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, aversion to nipples, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 2.149 billion Pepperonis are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Callistan. The average income tax rate is 76.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Pepperoni economy, worth 398 trillion Gabings a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 185,495 Gabings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, the government's new 'Crime Can Fight Itself' policy appears to be backfiring rather badly, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, and withdrawal of support for drug addicts is leaving many with cold sweats. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gabingston's national animal is the Goose, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Post-Cheesepocolyptic Church.

Gabingston is ranked 33,427th in the world and 224th in Europeia for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,568.58 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
