The Interim National Authority of The Gatisland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Unity Government with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 3.117 billion Gatisians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Therveux. The average income tax rate is 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Gatisian economy, worth 239 trillion Laibres 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 a slick, highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Automobile Manufacturing. 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 76,808 Laibres, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, The Unity Government has just been declared ruler of The Gatisland in an international press conference, and a major religion has been named as The Gatisland's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Gatisland's national animal is the Gatisian Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Gatisland is ranked 43,816th in the world and 70th in The Hole To Hide In for Most Developed, scoring 67.83 on the Human Development Index.
