The Empire of Gustavovich is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Great Leader Emperor Gustav Gustavovich with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, unlimited-speed roads, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.94 billion Gustavovich Peoples 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gustavopol. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gustavovichian economy, worth 718 trillion prępols 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 black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 182,296 prępols, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Education is transforming people into first-rate snobs, gossip magazines have been replaced by mask catalogs, creating cardboard imitations of missiles is a new top-secret military project, and the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gustavovich's national animal is the Black Jaguar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Gustavovichian Orthodox Church.

Gustavovich is ranked 8,118th in the world and 2nd in Audinesca for Most Devout, with 4,381.07 prayers per hour.
