The Most Serene Republic of Gabeopolis is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its daily referendums, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 507 million Gabeopolisians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sloth City. The average income tax rate is 79.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Gabeopolisian economy, worth 34.9 trillion Silver Sloths a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Basket Weaving. Average income is 68,814 Silver Sloths, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, the government tries to improve relations with hostile countries by sending gift baskets, exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, and the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gabeopolis's national animal is the Sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gabeopolis is ranked 165,084th in the world and 350th in The Free Nations Region for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 740.74 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
