The Tyrol Industries of Orthodox Gnosticism is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Tyrol Industries with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 30.014 billion Skinriders are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crysanthea. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Human economy, worth an astonishing 14,689 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 489,426 Imperial Credits, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

Conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue, chocolate in Orthodox Gnosticism has its flavour enhanced by the salty tears of enslaved factory workers, Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Orthodox Gnosticism as a reminder of their "special relationship", and new legislators take a week-long class entitled "Keeping Your Job: How to Avoid Offending Tyrol Industries". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Orthodox Gnosticism's national animal is the Raman, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Humanism.

Orthodox Gnosticism is ranked 1,025th in the world and 3rd in Grand Alliance for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 34,146.97 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
