The Watchfires of GA-1 is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, prohibition of alcohol, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 16.782 billion GA-1ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.3%.

The very strong GA-1ian economy, worth 804 trillion $$s a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 47,945 $$s, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 144,729 per year while the poor average 12,374, a ratio of 11.7 to 1.

The nation's once beautiful countryside has turned brown as farmers spray potent pesticides, among slaves 'bastard' is an honorific rather than an insult, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, and Tom and Jerry cartoons have cat and mouse resolving their problems with reasoned discussion. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. GA-1's national animal is the ^-^, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

GA-1 is ranked 11,574th in the world and 1st in Greater Antarctica for Largest Black Market, with 77.2 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
