The Armed Technocracy of The Gelseen Hegemony is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor Speers with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, otherworldly petting zoo, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 11.401 billion Gelseens 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, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rovenoir. The average income tax rate is 79.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gelseen Hegemonyian economy, worth a remarkable 7,144 trillion Gold Dinars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is a breathtaking 626,635 Gold Dinars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub, families must live in a village for a century before they get any say in how it runs, citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, and street preachers sell salvation with a side order of shame on every corner. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Gelseen Hegemony's national animal is the Red Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Worship through Creation.

The Gelseen Hegemony is ranked 168,261st in the world and 4,116th in Lazarus for Highest Drug Use, scoring 47.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
