The Bleak Eternity of Gehenna Layers is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by High Lord Doresain with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 2.145 billion Gehennians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Crawling City. The average income tax rate is 34.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Gehennian economy, worth 308 trillion shekels a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 143,696 shekels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves, industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, and nude art is becoming wildly popular. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Gehenna Layers's national animal is the Yugoloth, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Desert Zombies.

Gehenna Layers is ranked 63,139th in the world and 5th in Avaria for Most Influential, scoring 204 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
