Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Bloodsoaked Wasteland of Gidoristan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Overlord with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, prohibition of alcohol, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 14.967 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 effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Healthcare and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. 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 4,676 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 312,422 skulls of its enemieses, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,092,390 per year while the poor average 64,936, a ratio of 16.8 to 1.

The Foreign Ministry thinks an eye for an eye is a blindingly good idea, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', and the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners. 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 118,365th in the world and 57th in The New Inquisition for Most Devout, with 11.59 Prayers Per Hour.
