The Grand Duchy of Gateas is a large, safe nation, notable for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, democratic population of 85 million Gateasians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.1%.

The strong Gateasian economy, worth 6.00 trillion florins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 70,534 florins, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

In distant lands the nation is known as a lovely place that was even better in the good old days, escalators are avoided at all costs, almost every singles' party has a clergy and courtesans theme, and arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Gateas's national animal is the Labrador.

Gateas is ranked 87,473rd in the world and 100th in Texas for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 1,169.77 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
