The Bloodsoaked Wasteland of Gidoristan is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by the Overlord with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 9.871 billion Gidoristanians 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."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Installation 04. The average income tax rate is 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology.

Marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, government-run brothels can be found on every street corner, citizens must pay to enjoy Gidoristan's pristine beaches, and children spout "Armageddon starts here" involuntarily throughout the day. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Gidoristan's national animal is the zombie, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is worshipping the Overlord, and its currency is the skulls of its enemies.

Gidoristan is ranked 2nd in The New Inquisition and 484th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 17 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
