The Hidden Undergound Lair of Gnomewatchers is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Gnomad with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 27.783 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gnomeria. The average income tax rate is 87.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gnomeian economy, worth a remarkable 2,687 trillion crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 96,744 crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 7,585th in the world and 362nd in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 12,393.84 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
