The Bloodsoaked Wasteland of Gidoristan is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by the Overlord with an iron fist, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.426 billion 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 97%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology.

The sound of wooden legs echo throughout Gidoristan after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, citizens are forbidden from leaving the country, and Gidoristan-made cars tend to catch fire in people's driveways. 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 383rd in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 21 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
