The Shadow-Fearing Agoraphobes of Gaw is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Tom Gawyer with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate population of 2.728 billion Gawians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Welfare, although Education, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gawmora. The average income tax rate is 74.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Gawian economy, worth 140 trillion Eggshells a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Retail, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 51,479 Eggshells, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Judicial robes are the country's hottest fashion trend, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, and the nation operates a "finders-keepers" policy with other nations' citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gaw's national animal is the Quetzalcoatlus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gaw is ranked 122,787th in the world and 236th in Forest for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 824.03 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
