The Dictatorship of Gambierland is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its public floggings, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 658 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gambier. The average income tax rate is 82.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Gambierlandian economy, worth 56.9 trillion rubles a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 86,483 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Legal contracts aren't worth the paper they're written on, the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, video evidence of cruel animal experiments tends to be of poor quality, and the fate of the world literally rests on Leader's fingers. 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 20,812th in the world and 1,146th in The North Pacific for Best Weather, with 153 Meters Of Sunlight.
