The Secularized Empire of The Knockout Gun Gals is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Kim Hyeon Soo with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, state-planned economy, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 20.056 billion Shogunans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Mortem Kyoto. The average income tax rate is 44.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shogunian economy, worth a remarkable 5,200 trillion Gals 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 a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 an amazing 259,294 Gals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sniffer dogs check train passengers for body odour, birdsong in the mountains has to be loud enough to drown out nearby jackhammers, lawyers spend as much time preparing their make-up as they do their briefs, and diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Knockout Gun Gals's national animal is the Komodo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Hyeonisian.

The Knockout Gun Gals is ranked 57,918th in the world and 4th in Gatehouse by the P2TM for Most Stationary, with 526.75107260132 days.
