The Looming Shadow of Gebeta is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Alois with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless population of 23.364 billion Gebetians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bensa. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The Gebetan economy, worth a remarkable 2,017 trillion Verchas a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 86,358 Verchas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

More sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people, the only science is political science, soldiers' positions are given away by the glint of their bayonets, and parents often leave their kids in the car while they attend mindfulness meditation sessions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gebeta's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Gebeta is ranked 259,601st in the world and 79th in Enowiden for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -20.3 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
