The Necropolis Tyranny of Geckocidron is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by HRM Lich-King Geckocidron III with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 22.93 billion Geckocidians 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 tiny, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Necropolis Spire. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Geckocidan economy, worth an astonishing 14,568 trillion Gecko Eyes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 635,336 Gecko Eyes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,073,364 per year while the poor average 146,453, a ratio of 14.2 to 1.

The word 'elite' appears as a synonym for various insults in the Geckocidan Colonial Thesaurus, there's a mortuary next to every Geckocidan restaurant, bad decisions are made very quickly, and citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Geckocidron's national animal is the Gecko, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Hatred.

Geckocidron is ranked 21,553rd in the world and 491st in the Rejected Realms for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 5,435.18 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
