The Nomadic Peoples of Genpesreetle is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its fear of technology, smutty television, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.699 billion Genpesreetleans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 59.8%.

The all-consuming Genpesreetlean economy, worth 573 trillion Deneroes a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 122,130 Deneroes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 371,951 per year while the poor average 31,123, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Terrorist videos start by thanking their sponsors, theatre may or may not be changing for the better but it is being changed for good, "Mad Max: Returning Again to Barrydrome" is this year's unexpected summer blockbuster, and no one born in Genpesreetle can fix a leaky faucet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Genpesreetle's national animal is the Rattlesnake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Genpesreetle is ranked 201,816th in the world and 7,239th in Lazarus for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 24.99 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
