The Ipsum bonum statum of Gloucester City is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Pokatioa Senjikia with an iron fist, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, prohibition of alcohol, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.132 billion Gloucester- Chites 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, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Public Transport isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chite City. The average income tax rate is 57.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gloucester Cityian economy, worth 178 trillion Rubble of the Chiteses a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 158,083 Rubble of the Chiteses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Believers must practice religion behind church doors lest the government smite them with a mighty fine, education for the poor is learning to ask "do you want fries with that?", ten thousand Gloucester Cityian soldiers recently invaded a nation occupied by two senior citizens and a dachshund, and the government is telling wizards to put their heart into their work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gloucester City's national animal is the Goldfinch, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is ŽemÄ—s kultas.

Gloucester City is ranked 216,985th in the world and 521st in The Leftist Assembly for Highest Drug Use, scoring 26.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
