The Republic of Gersedsok is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 370 million Gersedsokians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, pro-business government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.7%.

The thriving Gersedsokian economy, worth 31.2 trillion kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 84,346 kronor, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 361,715 per year while the poor average 12,588, a ratio of 28.7 to 1.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, Leader claims to be the epitome of family values, a cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, and homeless people are periodically found dead upon altars to assorted deities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gersedsok's national animal is the squirrel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Gersedsok is ranked 147,403rd in the world and 6,886th in The East Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 12.51 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
