The Empire of Gernar is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Jong Yon Kim with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, lack of airports, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.131 billion Gernarians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gernar City. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Gernarian economy, worth 638 trillion Rubles 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 an amazing 299,577 Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Courses in how to boil water are popular for formerly microwave-reliant Gernarians, acupuncture is routinely prescribed for intravenous drug addicts, children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban, and the national anthem's only purpose is to inflate Supreme Leader Jong Yon Kim's ever-expanding ego. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gernar's national animal is the Emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gernar is ranked 2,672nd in the world and 1st in Warzone Sandbox for Lowest Crime Rates, with 125.82 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
