The Hidden Undergound Lair of Gnomewatchers is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Gnomad with an iron fist, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 24.508 billion Gnomes 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gnomeria. The average income tax rate is 80.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gnomeian economy, worth a remarkable 2,502 trillion crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,124 crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

A fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gnomewatchers's national animal is the garden gnome, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Gnomewatchers is ranked 11,430th in the world and 524th in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,700.17 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
