The Dominion of Gatwelve is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.938 billion Gatwelveans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Englechan. The average income tax rate is 17.9%.

The powerhouse Gatwelvean economy, worth 435 trillion currents a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 73,336 currents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Machine gun nests are the latest must-have gardening trend, Gatwelveans are unrivalled in obstacle courses, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, and citizens re-mortgage their homes to buy lottery tickets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gatwelve's national animal is the animo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Gatwelve is ranked 136,160th in the world and 3,573rd in Balder for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 647.21 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
