The Armed Technocracy of The Gelseen Hegemony is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Chancellor Speers with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 11.134 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 Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rovenoir. The average income tax rate is 78.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gelseen Hegemonyian economy, worth a remarkable 7,005 trillion Gold Dinars 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. 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 a breathtaking 629,185 Gold Dinars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Chancellor Speers's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners, the nation frequently scolds its subject territories for staying up past bedtime, it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, and the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Gelseen Hegemony's national animal is the Red Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Worship through Creation.

The Gelseen Hegemony is ranked 263,486th in the world and 7,046th in Lazarus for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.63 crimes per hour.
