The OMG It's the Nation of Gladio II is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Gladio with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 16.067 billion Gladiators 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gladion. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Gladiator economy, worth 786 trillion Golds a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 48,941 Golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government's suggestions box is curiously empty these days, newspapers and TV broadcasters are given a list of 'acceptable words', out-of-work actors say they can't complain, and holidays are regarded as the most miserable time of the year. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gladio II's national animal is the leprechaun, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Gladion.

Gladio II is ranked 135,678th in the world and 4,899th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -57.1 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
