The United Nationalist States of Gabenhalla is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Robert J Sorbo with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, infamous sell-swords, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.219 billion Gabenhallans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Durahona. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Gabenhallan economy, worth a remarkable 1,333 trillion kazkans a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 184,742 kazkans, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,029,941 per year while the poor average 16,544, a ratio of 62.3 to 1.

It's best not to ask what goes into Durahona Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices, the commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Gabenhalla with a very polite populace, an inkwell of goats' blood is supplied on school desks across the nation, and the Gabenhalla Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise. Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Gabenhalla's national animal is the Corgi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gabenhalla is ranked 1,927th in the world and 7th in Spiritus for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 715.42 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
