The Empire of Gaberel is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Jin with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, strictly enforced bedtime, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 17.522 billion Gaberelians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gaberel City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Gaberelian economy, worth an astonishing 16,069 trillion galecs 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 Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 917,107 galecs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, Jin signs the laws but abides by none of them, lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, and the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Gaberel's national animal is the panther, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Gaberel is ranked 23,175th in the world and 1,286th in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 80.14 on the Human Development Index.
