The Reptilian Rage of Gamera is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, cynical population of 42.992 billion Gamerans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Gameran economy, worth 832 trillion shells 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Basket Weaving, Pizza Delivery, Furniture Restoration, and Soda Sales. 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 19,363 shells, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vegetarianism is compulsory, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, a dictator has seized power and outlawed elections, and political activists are routinely executed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gamera's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Gamera is ranked 102,795th in the world and 47th in Middle Earth for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 32.99 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
