The Hidden Undergound Lair of Gnomewatchers is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Gnomad with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, infamous sell-swords, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 25.324 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 83.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gnomeian economy, worth a remarkable 2,403 trillion crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 94,909 crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 11,253rd in the world and 631st in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,515.59 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
