The United Kingdom of GTCJ is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by HM King Gregorius I with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, cynical population of 7.567 billion Gileadans 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, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although Defence and Religion & Spirituality are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of HeavenGate. The average income tax rate is 94%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.
Torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, CDs are regularly copy-protected, private law firms are unheard of, and radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. GTCJ's national animal is the Dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Biblonian Christianity, and its currency is the Quopes.
