The Holy Empire of Gimli the dwarf is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 15.865 billion Gimli the dwarfians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.9%.

The very strong Gimli the dwarfian economy, worth 820 trillion rubies a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Trout Farming, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 51,700 rubies, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 173,808 per year while the poor average 11,403, a ratio of 15.2 to 1.

Ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, city sidewalks are crowded with overweight people, public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, and historical fiction has been banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem. Gimli the dwarf's national animal is the mouse.

Gimli the dwarf is ranked 104,447th in the world and 8th in The New Inquisition for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 391.84 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
