The Republican Empire of New Garzah is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by God-Emperor Sovie Varzhauis with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 9.619 billion Garzians 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 concentrates mainly on Defence, although Education and Law & Order are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taezrat Ghertaa. The average income tax rate is 89%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Tourism and Gambling.

Rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, corporate 'hostile takeovers' now involve ICBMs and main battle tanks, failure to pay the thrice-daily homage to the divine God-Emperor Sovie Varzhauis is punishable by death, and criminals are thrown to the neirs to repay their debt to society. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Garzah's national animal is the neir, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is radical agnosticism, and its currency is the Krezh.

New Garzah is ranked 5th in Skyhaven and 73,908th in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, scoring 63 on the Inverse Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
