The Sonindian Empire of Gerdon Laughis is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Raka Piala with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 10.59 billion Gerdon Laughians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zeno. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Gerdon Laughian economy, worth a remarkable 1,336 trillion Gold Bars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 126,246 Gold Bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The paparazzi publicize Royal scandals with the utmost delight, rumor has it that Raka Piala has won three lotteries in a row, the government is in utter turmoil following the recent abolishment of the tax code, and money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gerdon Laughis's national animal is the Boar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Gaala Haalanism.

Gerdon Laughis is ranked 200,605th in the world and 285th in Sonindia for Most Avoided, scoring 0.4 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
