The Lunacy of Servants of Gizmo is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Gizmo with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 12.945 billion Servants are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gizmo City. The average income tax rate is 56.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient a Servant economy, worth a remarkable 2,578 trillion Cat Treats a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 199,156 Cat Treats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, Maxtopian villagers starve by the time a Servant officials even file the appropriate paperwork needed to help them, and nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Servants of Gizmo's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult Of The Cat.

Servants of Gizmo is ranked 6,383rd in the world and 132nd in The East Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 199,156.27 Standard Monetary Units.
