The South Pacific Consortium of Gauthier is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Johnson with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service. The compassionate, cynical population of 24.001 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 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.

Schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and reporters sent to cover suspected UFO visits come back with stories about quilting bees. 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 2nd in the South Pacific and 43rd in the world for Best Weather, with 2,139 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
