The United Democracy of Redwood-Gabriel is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Gabriel with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.589 billion Redwood-Gabrielians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Homeyopolis. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Redwood-Gabrielian economy, worth 151 trillion Gold Carters a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 95,227 Gold Carters, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, professional athletes juggle part-time jobs to avoid bankruptcy, manufacturers are sued for almost anything not covered in their catalogue-sized manuals, and many working fathers have never seen their children. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Redwood-Gabriel's national animal is the Rebel Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Redwood-Gabriel is ranked 119,475th in the world and 17th in Ridgefield for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.09 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
