The United States of GTCJ is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Gregory Austin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, cynical population of 8.128 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.
The enormous government prioritizes Law & Order, with Education, Defense, and Spirituality also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of HeavenGate. The average income tax rate is 85.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Gileadan economy, worth 826 trillion Quopeses a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 101,683 Quopeses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.
Radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, abortions are routinely performed in GTCJ's hospitals, and schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students. 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, and its national religion is Christianity.
GTCJ is ranked 2nd in The Supreme Union and 4,116th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 863.85 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
