The Glorious Republic of Nueva Gaudria is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Glorious President-for-life Erik with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.036 billion Gaudrians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Environment, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cielo Alto. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Gaudrian economy, worth a remarkable 3,600 trillion Pentoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 358,732 Pentoes, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,011,108 per year while the poor average 31,728, a ratio of 63.4 to 1.

Mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Rabbits and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry, the populace has developed a mortal fear of the woods, celebrity foodies are biting a huge chunk out of the government budget, and cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Nueva Gaudria's national animal is the Rabbit, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Turbo Swag.

Nueva Gaudria is ranked 136,517th in the world and 4,639th in Balder for Longest Average Lifespans, with 53.54 Years.
