The Grand National Empire of Gafudland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by King Gordon Adolf Germain with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, cynical population of 3.227 billion Germans 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.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aldherst. The average income tax rate is 35.8%.

The thriving Germanish economy, worth 205 trillion Gafudland Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 63,545 Gafudland Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

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 a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gafudland's national animal is the Steel Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Germanism.

Gafudland is ranked 1,551st in Balder and 34,583rd in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 93 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
