The Lord and Holy Saviour of Gordfield is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The High and Mighty Gordfield with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, lack of airports, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.531 billion Lasgn lovers are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jons house. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 47.4%.

The all-consuming Lasgn loverian economy, worth 445 trillion Lasagns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 175,840 Lasagns, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 571,979 per year while the poor average 40,728, a ratio of 14.0 to 1.

Vital infrastructure development is on hold because of 'nature and stuff', anyone dissenting from the state ideology is declared "mentally ill" and whisked away in a straitjacket, the nation is Lardyland's leading manufacturer of intricately-patterned sweaters, and enemy agents are generally eliminated with extreme prejudice. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Gordfield's national animal is the Odie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Gordfield and his mighty lasagn.

Gordfield is ranked 10,308th in the world and 4th in Lardyland for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 37.63 Bank.
