The Carefully Hidden Moonbase of Gnomewatchers is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Gnomad with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, frequent executions, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 22.07 billion Gnomes are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gnomeria. The average income tax rate is 71.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Gnomeian economy, worth a remarkable 1,958 trillion crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 88,733 crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, the rich tend their gardens inside gated urban farming communities, countless government officials are accused of espionage, and posters on 'Gnomeian Values' advise against being proud of Gnomewatchers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gnomewatchers's national animal is the garden gnome, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Gnomewatchers is ranked 16,454th in the world and 898th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 79.19 on the Human Development Index.
