The Government of Gasoline is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Exxon Baytown Refinery Rubber Unit with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, compulsory vegetarianism, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.766 billion Hydroblasters 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Spirituality, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pasadena Texas. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.0%.
The powerhouse Gasolinean economy, worth 246 trillion Line Moles a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 65,416 Line Moles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 235,288 per year while the poor average 13,018, a ratio of 18.1 to 1.
Surfers ride tsunamis of record height and toxicity, online tourism reviews of Gasoline are suspiciously positive and amazingly similar, the nation's youth is held blameless for all crimes, and most of the military's funding goes into researching space-age weaponry. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Gasoline's national animal is the Operator, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Peakload.
