The Military State of GSSR is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Marshal Vladimir Petkov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.491 billion Republicans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Religion & Spirituality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Petkovgrad. The average income tax rate is 97%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Nudity is frowned upon, Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, and the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. GSSR's national animal is the Polar Boover, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Protestant Christianity, and its currency is the Credit.

GSSR is ranked 2nd in CSSR and 8,228th in the world for Best Weather, with 127 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
