The United Socialist States of Gemlon is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 309 million Gemlonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zednech. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Gemlonian economy, worth 14.2 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 dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 46,080 Chits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, some people will do literally anything to be in the spotlight, the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, and Gemlon has designated Zednech as its capital city. 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 14,772nd in the world and 660th in The East Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 2,070 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
