The Armed Technocracy of The Gelseen Hegemony is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chancellor Speers with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, unlimited-speed roads, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 9.75 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 47.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Gelseen Hegemonyian economy, worth a remarkable 4,980 trillion Gold Tetras 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 a breathtaking 510,814 Gold Tetras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The hit new medical TV show "Home" prominently features the brand of painkiller the lead doctor is addicted to, returning tourists and businessmen are detained without trial if they belong to the "wrong" religion, Chancellor Speers's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, and business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters. 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 14,060th in the world and 846th in Lazarus for Lowest Crime Rates, with 88.32 law-abiding acts per hour.
