The Azure Kingdom of Gerch is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Brett Ingrid with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.078 billion Gerchians 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 tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ocarina - George Town. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Gerch economy, worth 949 trillion Gerch Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 156,238 Gerch Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 650,562 per year while the poor average 24,528, a ratio of 26.5 to 1.

Doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, motorcycle riders are required to wear so much gear they've been nicknamed "Stay Pufts", leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, and amorous nobles always bring the same disappointing gift to weddings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Gerch's national animal is the Roosnak, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Ocarina.

Gerch is ranked 45,505th in the world and 6th in Emery for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 2.97 Bank.
