The Republic of Gardener100 is a massive, safe nation, notable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, compulsory gun ownership, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.158 billion Gardener100ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Gardener100ian economy, worth 94.9 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 81,920 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room, school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, high school bands practice by moonlight, and the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gardener100's national animal is the penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Gardener100 is ranked 32,347th in the world and 1,460th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,677.11 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
