The Federation of Gerald Does Things is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, rampant corporate plagiarism, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 3.346 billion Gerald Does Thingsians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, pro-business government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Gerald Does Thingsian economy, worth 641 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 191,743 credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 762,036 per year while the poor average 32,540, a ratio of 23.4 to 1.

Most credits coins are riddled with bite marks, re-education centers are being added to most prisons, nihilistic thrill-seekers claim that suicide by roller coaster is the ultimate life experience, and the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Gerald Does Things's national animal is the e coli, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Gerald Does Things is ranked 22,850th in the world and 607th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 77.89 on the Rand Index.
