Gross National Datamass would be all the datamass attributed to
nationals of a particular country, Gross Domestic Datamass all the
datamass produced within a particular country. So if this text were paid
for (which, as far as I can make out, it's not, and therefore not text),
it would be GND of the United Snakes of Armenia, and GDD of OZ.
