The Dictatorship of Gatorstan is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Gatorman with an iron fist, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, ubiquitous missile silos, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.103 billion Gatorstanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crocodile city. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Gatorstanian economy, worth 484 trillion GATORS 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, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. 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 230,182 GATORS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Pulling weeds is seen as a threat to national security, a small country is wondering where their capitol building's gold dome went, ships are encouraged to deliberately run aground onto Gatorstanian beaches, and Gatorstan is increasingly belligerent on the international stage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gatorstan's national animal is the Crocodile, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Gatorstan is ranked 156,517th in the world and 308th in Conch Kingdom for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 286.77 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
