The Empire of Gaberel is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Jin with an iron fist, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 17.505 billion Gaberelians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gaberel City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Gaberelian economy, worth an astonishing 16,048 trillion galecs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 916,805 galecs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, industry leaders commend the government for enacting an emissions reduction strategy that reduces no Gaberelian emissions at all, Gaberel's Medieval Faire is renowned as one of the best in the region, and the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Gaberel City. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Gaberel's national animal is the panther, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Gaberel is ranked 636th in the world and 21st in Lazarus for Rudest Citizens, with 397.25 Insults Per Minute.
