The Darn Toot'in Nation of GHAUNADAUR is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Gustav the Glave with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, public floggings, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 25.072 billion GHAUNADAURians 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.6%.

The frighteningly efficient GHAUNADAURian economy, worth an astonishing 12,744 trillion Dragoons a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is a breathtaking 508,332 Dragoons, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Childhood friends of Gustav the Glave are living it large abroad at the taxpayers' expense, those who don't have a bean to spend don't know a bean about Brasilistanian coffee beans, the police use sound cannons and mortars to deal with loud parties, and global anti-terrorist organisations strongly suspect GHAUNADAUR of supplying extremist groups. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. GHAUNADAUR's national animal is the Black Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Voraciousism.

GHAUNADAUR is ranked 37,053rd in the world and 1,005th in Osiris for Most Extreme, scoring 27.16 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
