The Necropolis Tyranny of Geckocidron is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by HRM Lich-King Geckocidron III with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, triple-decker prams, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 25.53 billion Geckocidians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Necropolis Spire. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Geckocidan economy, worth an astonishing 16,297 trillion Gecko Eyes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 638,359 Gecko Eyes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,287,833 per year while the poor average 127,742, a ratio of 17.9 to 1.

Five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, both criminals and civilians are DOA, shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, and children have nightmares about the eerie red glow and constant whirring of newly-installed machines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Geckocidron's national animal is the Gecko, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Hatred.

Geckocidron is ranked 255,124th in the world and 6,130th in the Rejected Realms for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 6.25 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
