The Feathered Clawed Republic of GawHool is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme ChancellOwl with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 11.814 billion GawHoolies live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CapitOwl City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.3%.

The frighteningly efficient GawHoolian economy, worth a remarkable 3,591 trillion Hoolies a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 304,046 Hoolies, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, the army spends more time producing 'romantic videos' than actually training soldiers, and bizarre-looking creatures called 'Owldogs' dominate wildlife preserves. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. GawHool's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

GawHool is ranked 270,448th in the world and 187th in Yggdrasil for Fattest Citizens, with 5.14 Obesity Rate.
