The Republic of Greater Gilead is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by the Board of Commanders of the Faithful with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, infamous sell-swords, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.774 billion Gileadians 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 enormous, 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 Cambridge. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 81.2%.

The powerhouse Gileadian economy, worth 935 trillion Tokens a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 138,060 Tokens, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 542,246 per year while the poor average 23,887, a ratio of 22.7 to 1.

Twice-daily toilet inspection rotas for government buildings are archived for public appraisal, soldiers go to war dressed in cassocks and robes, the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, and Greater Gilead isn't what it used to be. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Gilead's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Fundamental Christianity.

Greater Gilead is ranked 205,824th in the world and 2nd in Kerbin System for Least Corrupt Governments, with 21.72 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
