The Nomadic Peoples of Gilderien is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Gild Erien with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 4.263 billion Gilderienians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gilderien City. The average income tax rate is 47%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing industries.

The number of students attending university has reached a record high, territories have the right to secede if they aren't happy, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, and the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Gilderien's national animal is the Frog, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Atheism, and its currency is the Drachma.

Gilderien is ranked 4th in Democratium and 3,303rd in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 38 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
