The Lunacy of Servants of Gizmo is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lord Gizmo with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed population of 13.341 billion Servants are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded 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 5.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient a Servant economy, worth a remarkable 2,512 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 188,331 Cat Treats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, and Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 23,154th in the world and 422nd in The East Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 101.94 Insults Per Minute.
