The Monastic Kingdom of Gerdon Laughis is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tarim Piala with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, complete lack of prisons, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.304 billion Gerdons enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zeno. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Gerdon economy, worth 806 trillion Gold Bars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 110,441 Gold Bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Meat prices are soaring as the farming industry struggle under government imposed restrictions, burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony, the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, and school history books often refer to Tarim Piala as "that imperialist pig dog". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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.
