The Empire Commonwealth of Gierling is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Thegn Hosea Lancaster with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The devout population of 3.479 billion Gierlings have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corrinth. The average income tax rate is 29.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Gierlese economy, worth 201 trillion thalers a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 57,818 thalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Gierling, whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company, the "blue screen of death" forces many trials to be either aborted or restarted, and worried-looking neonatal nurses are being deployed in place of SWAT teams during dangerous drug busts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gierling's national animal is the lion and its national religion is New Avalon Catholic Church.

Gierling is ranked 156,627th in the world and 16th in Taijitu for Most Primitive, scoring -79.83 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
