The Planet of Gildera is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lara Parrish with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, cynical population of 11.027 billion Parrishians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The citadel. The average income tax rate is 40.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Parrishian economy, worth a remarkable 1,142 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 103,590 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps", daily newspapers are permitted to run only pro-government stories, and a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gildera's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Luddic Church.

Gildera is ranked 191,595th in the world and 10th in The Warden World for Most Extreme, scoring 9.88 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
