Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Bloodsoaked Wasteland of Gidoristan is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by the Overlord with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, vat-grown people, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 15.529 billion Gidoristanians 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 tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Healthcare, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Installation 04. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Gidoristanian economy, worth a remarkable 4,858 trillion skulls of its enemieses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 312,885 skulls of its enemieses, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,101,685 per year while the poor average 64,341, a ratio of 17.1 to 1.

There is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, the new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards, the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Gidoristanians any less frightened, and Gidoristanian athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Gidoristan's national animal is the zombie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is worshipping the Overlord.

Gidoristan is ranked 143,962nd in the world and 49th in The New Inquisition for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.7 Crimes Per Hour.
