The Lunacy of Servants of Gizmo is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Gizmo with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, ban on automobiles, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 12.879 billion Servants are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gizmo City. The average income tax rate is 49.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient a Servant economy, worth a remarkable 2,546 trillion Cat Treats a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 197,762 Cat Treats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Environmentalists have found an unusual ally in soldiers of fortune, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Servants of Gizmo's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult Of The Cat.

Servants of Gizmo is ranked 290th in the world and 9th in The East Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 97.73 Years.
