The Disputed Territories of Gem is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 262 million queers are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Welfare, although Education, Healthcare, and International Aid are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. The average income tax rate is 40.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped queer economy, worth 7.55 trillion cherry petals 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Pizza Delivery, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 28,799 cherry petals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown. Gem's national animal is the Oshawott, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gem is ranked 33,156th in the world and 172nd in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 82 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
