The Armed Technocracy of The Gelseen Hegemony is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Chancellor Speers with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, vat-grown people, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 15.005 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 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Gelseen Hegemonyian economy, worth an astonishing 10,650 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, Retail, and Tourism. 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 709,770 Gold Dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Red Falcons are frequently shot for looking at people 'in a funny way', the single fish caught by Gelseen Hegemonyian fishers last year is cited as evidence of The Gelseen Hegemony's thriving fisheries, going on a diet invalidates your passport, and cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy. 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 Worship through Creation.

The Gelseen Hegemony is ranked 297,613th in the world and 12,389th in Lazarus for Most Avoided, scoring 0.35 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
