The Empire of Gaulkaddia is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape and compulsory military service. The quiet, industrious population of 262 million Gaulkaddians 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 government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Welfare, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Environment are ignored. The average income tax rate is 17.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Gaulkaddian economy, worth 13.8 trillion emeralds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 52,607 emeralds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, Gaulkaddia is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, and it is often said that only Leader could bring down Dàguó. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gaulkaddia's national animal is the Eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Gaulkaddia is ranked 119,034th in the world and 4,383rd in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 42 on the Rand Index.
