The United Socialist States of Gemlon is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Premier Kogrof with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 2.057 billion Gemlonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zednech. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Gemlonian economy, worth 222 trillion Chits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 108,388 Chits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", Maxtopian villagers starve by the time Gemlonian officials even file the appropriate paperwork needed to help them, suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, and glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gemlon's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Gemlon is ranked 187,287th in the world and 8,006th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -8.94 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
