The Government of Gasoline is a massive, economically powerful nation, renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.4 billion Gasolineans 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 minute, corrupt, moralistic government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defence, Religion & Spirituality, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Smogville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10%. A substantial private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Fast food restaurants everywhere are under the control of a gigantic government corporation, knitting needles have been banned in the name of public safety, the workforce is almost entirely made up of slave labour, and there is a disproportionate number of poor people in prison. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Gasoline's national animal is the Dinosaur, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Theft, and its currency is the Nation.

Gasoline is ranked 4th in Alcohol and 107,787th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 21 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
