The First Bank of Gatesville is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Mr Gates with an iron fist, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 17.627 billion Gatesvilleans 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 Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gatesville. The average income tax rate is 63.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Gatesvillean economy, worth 282 trillion Gates a year, is highly specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 16,025 Gates, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gatesville has designated Gatesville as its capital city, private business has started paving paradises and putting up parking lots, Money has been named as Gatesville's national religion, and Mr Gates has just been declared ruler of Gatesville in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gatesville's national animal is the falcon and its national religion is Money.

Gatesville is ranked 62,935th in the world and 2,392nd in the Rejected Realms for Highest Economic Output, with 282 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
