The South Pacific Consortium of Gauthier is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Johnson with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, cynical population of 24.3 billion Gauthierians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Petra. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Vigilance Goshawk is one of the most popular forenames in Gauthier, the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, the poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet, and the government pours millions of Credits into rehabilitation programs annually. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gauthier's national animal is the Vigilance Goshawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Credit.

Gauthier is ranked 21st in the South Pacific and 1,312th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 369 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
