The Theocracy of GIF Land is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 347 million GIF Landians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Spirituality, and Welfare also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 55.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong GIF Landian economy, worth 24.4 trillion GIFbits 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 a slick, highly efficient black market in Tourism, Pizza Delivery, Basket Weaving, and Retail. 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 70,342 GIFbits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

CSI Forest is this year's hit new crime show, internet moderators work overtime to remove memes comparing Leader to cartoon bears, anniversaries of major historical events pass unnoticed, and fashion models are guaranteed to be 100% genuinely as anorexic as they appear on magazine covers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. GIF Land's national animal is the The GIF, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

GIF Land is ranked 8,301st in the world and 3rd in The Dark Dragondom for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 6,768.1 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
