The Greedy Capitalists of The nation of Gunland is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Gunther the Gun with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, ubiquitous missile silos, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.779 billion Guntherians 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 Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Las Vegas. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.4%.

The frighteningly efficient nation of Gunlandian economy, worth 337 trillion Bullets a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 121,542 Bullets, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 434,821 per year while the poor average 24,389, a ratio of 17.8 to 1.

The family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, children who display even minimal sporting aptitude are immediately assigned a personal trainer, Calvinball players are lost for days as they wander the vast halls of their new academies, and stores employing more than 100 employees are required to be at least twenty miles from any competitor. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The nation of Gunland's national animal is the Nuclear bomb, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Violence and eternal pain.

The nation of Gunland is ranked 16,508th in the world and 2nd in The Galactic Empire of Britain for Most Developed, scoring 79.13 on the Human Development Index.
