The Confederated Communes of The Gilded Horde is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by nobody with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 7.787 billion Gilded Hordeans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business, outspoken individuals juggles the competing demands of Industry, Environment, and Public Transport. Income tax is unheard of.

The powerhouse Gilded Hordean economy, worth a remarkable 1,086 trillion Golden Apples a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 139,536 Golden Apples, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 821,258 per year while the poor average 11,030, a ratio of 74.5 to 1.

Solid-gold toilets are Gilded Hordean prisons' least expensive furnishings, procrastination is a national sport, boot polish is the favourite lip gloss of entry-level corporate workers, and all recreational drugs are legal. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Gilded Horde's national animal is the elk, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Gilded Horde is ranked 5,161st in the world and 13th in Anarchy for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 15,786.51 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
