The People's Republic of Gavierland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Jeff Frimpong with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.163 billion Gavierians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meridia. The average income tax rate is 79.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gavierlandian economy, worth 334 trillion Florans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 154,640 Florans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Getting an infected tattoo is considered a rite of passage in Gavierland, lovesick people are told 'it's not them, it's you', President Jeff Frimpong hands out warnings to mods who don't deliver enough danishes (Gavierland has found 1 easter egg), and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gavierland's national animal is the Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Gavierland is ranked 14,161st in the world and 9th in Africa for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 329.9 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
