The Citizen Republic of Gawdzendia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Alexander Christensen with an even hand, and renowned for its closed borders, state-planned economy, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 12.618 billion Gawdzendians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adonia City. The average income tax rate is 34.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gawdzendian economy, worth a remarkable 3,058 trillion GZDS 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 a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. 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 an amazing 242,363 GZDS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shivering secretaries type letters under torrential downpours in open-roof offices, annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, and it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Gawdzendia's national animal is the White Collar Desk Possum, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lutheranism.

Gawdzendia is ranked 219,885th in the world and 8,861st in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 6.68 Obesity Rate.
