The Congressional Republic of The Gelseen Hegemony is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Spears with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 8.933 billion Gelseens have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rouvenor. The average income tax rate is 28.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Gelseen Hegemonyian economy, worth a remarkable 3,937 trillion Aurums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 440,833 Aurums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The citizenship exam requires years of study to actually pass, the only science is political science, foreigners must sell an arm and a leg to afford surgery in The Gelseen Hegemony, and a good deed is rewarded with a thank you note attached to a deportation order. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Gelseen Hegemony's national animal is the Red Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Starship Manufacture.

The Gelseen Hegemony is ranked 206,840th in the world and 6,750th in Osiris for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 288.61 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
