The Empire of The Gelseen Hegemony is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Padishah Emperor of Mankind with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 8.503 billion Gelseens are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rouvenor. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Gelseen Hegemonyian economy, worth a remarkable 3,270 trillion Gelseen Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 384,656 Gelseen Marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,507,825 per year while the poor average 66,767, a ratio of 22.6 to 1.

Criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers, artists attempt to convince the Hardship Fund that their unmade bed is a masterpiece, all children's clothes come in only cream and off-white to prevent offense, and the government is spending millions on 'trust campaigns' in an effort to win back the public's support. Crime is totally unknown. The Gelseen Hegemony's national animal is the Red Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Religion of the God Emperor.

The Gelseen Hegemony is ranked 9,767th in the world and 503rd in Osiris for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 10,920.71 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
