The Grand National Empire of Gafudland is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Gordon Adolf Germain with an iron fist, and remarkable for its suspicion of poets. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 2.617 billion Gafudlander are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aldherst. The average income tax rate is 40%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Gambling.

Divorce is illegal, the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and citizens must pay to enjoy Gafudland's pristine beaches. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gafudland's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Germanism, and its currency is the Zadollru.

Gafudland is ranked 1,489th in Balder and 37,044th in the world for Largest Populations, with 2,617 Capita (millions).
