The Holy Empire of Gundriastan is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 409 million Gundriastanians 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Uterni. The average income tax rate is 70.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Gundriastanian economy, worth 46.0 trillion Punts a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,498 Punts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Kids building model rockets in their backyard are grounded by Space Agency Rangers, Leader is worshipped as a god, summer science camps are regularly raided by narcotics police, and the roads are notorious throughout the region for their peril. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gundriastan's national animal is the Mountain Hare, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Gundriastan is ranked 56,776th in the world and 134th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 2,640.52 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
