Wing Dings Gaster

Population1.319 billion

CapitalGaster's laboratory


The Mysterious figure of Wing Dings Gaster is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Gaster with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.319 billion Gaster followers 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 medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gaster's laboratory. The average income tax rate is 42.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Gaster economy, worth 144 trillion Golds a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 109,550 Golds, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

A video of Gaster wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news, cities are engulfed by smog, men avoid even so much as looking at female colleagues, and Tom and Jerry cartoons have cat and mouse resolving their problems with reasoned discussion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wing Dings Gaster's national animal is the Gaster, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Wing Dings Gaster is ranked 37,021st in the world and 1,744th in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 44,874 Standard Monetary Units.
