The Sonindian Empire of Gerdon Laughis is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Raka Piala with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, infamous sell-swords, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 10.396 billion Gerdon Laughians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zeno. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Gerdon Laughian economy, worth a remarkable 1,313 trillion Gold Bars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 126,372 Gold Bars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The paparazzi publicize Royal scandals with the utmost delight, rumor has it that Raka Piala has won three lotteries in a row, the government is in utter turmoil following the recent abolishment of the tax code, and money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gerdon Laughis's national animal is the Boar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Gaala Haalanism.

Gerdon Laughis is ranked 19,990th in the world and 50th in Sonindia for Highest Average Incomes, with 126,372.69 Standard Monetary Units.
