The Devolved Democracy of Gent Pop is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Alvin with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, unlimited-speed roads, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 2.162 billion Gent Popians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Under Gotham. The average income tax rate is 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gent Popian economy, worth 355 trillion Mars Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 164,577 Mars Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, urbanites battle to the death for penthouse apartments, and tuba players are paid to quietly whisper into their instruments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Gent Pop's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Violetism.

Gent Pop is ranked 114,800th in the world and 5,517th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 40.31 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
