The Lunacy of Servants of Gizmo is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Gizmo with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed population of 14.595 billion Servants 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gizmo City. The average income tax rate is 2.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient a Servant economy, worth a remarkable 2,720 trillion Cat Treats a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 186,421 Cat Treats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, there's never enough space in space, saying "don't do anything that Lord Gizmo wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, and the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Servants any less frightened. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Servants of Gizmo's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult Of The Cat.

Servants of Gizmo is ranked 91st in the world and 3rd in The East Pacific for Best Weather, with 1,877 Meters Of Sunlight.
