The Hidden Undergound Lair of Gnomewatchers is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Gnomad with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, pith helmet sales, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 23.658 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 76.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Gnomeian economy, worth a remarkable 2,554 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 common. Average income is an impressive 107,961 crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 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 a very well-funded 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 154,153rd in the world and 7,539th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -2.37 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
