The Hidden Undergound Lair of Gnomewatchers is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Gnomad with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 24.119 billion Gnomes are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gnomeria. The average income tax rate is 79.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gnomeian economy, worth a remarkable 2,476 trillion crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 102,678 crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

A fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gnomewatchers's national animal is the garden gnome, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Gnomewatchers is ranked 6,545th in the world and 351st in The North Pacific for Most Secular, with 97.33 Atheism Rate.
