The Dictatorship of Gopnigrad is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 181 million Gopnigradians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 51.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Gopnigradian economy, worth 7.51 trillion vodka caps a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 41,503 vodka caps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Family trees become bare as entire branches are lopped off, the people are famous throughout the region for their perfect yellow teeth, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, and collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gopnigrad's national animal is the gopnik, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gopnigrad is ranked 155,511th in the world and 5,829th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 369.74 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
