The Necropolis Tyranny of Geckocidron is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by HRM Lich-King Geckocidron III with an iron fist, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 22.444 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, although Industry, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. 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 14,274 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 636,023 Gecko Eyes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,052,248 per year while the poor average 149,073, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.

Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Necropolis Spire to enjoy their national art, practically perfect royal toddlers tend to say "regrettably not at this juncture" rather than "no", small shoes often wash up on the beach, and skyscrapers get built in just days. 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 17,412th in the world and 184th in the Rejected Realms for Most Stationary, with 977.03938858328 Days.
