The Empire of Gonsuln is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by T'natby with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, complete absence of social welfare, and exploding hoverboards. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.26 billion Gonsulnians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Administration, Industry, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Education and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of STULLERE. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Gonsulnian economy, worth 203 trillion Prostitutes a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 161,754 Prostitutes, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 865,711 per year while the poor average 15,826, a ratio of 54.7 to 1.

Vets have been drafted in to help "fix" those who fail the parental license exam, no animal is considered endangered if there's another that looks kind of like it, engineers are reinventing the wheel, and the nation's iron imports are booming. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Gonsuln's national animal is the Boa, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Gonsuln is ranked 9,900th in the world and 489th in Osiris for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 9,232.44 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
