The Gohulian Republic of Bunkaiia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Pentarchic Gohulian Directorship with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, daily referendums, and lack of airports. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.351 billion Bāņkaïans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ponaigā. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Bāņkaïan economy, worth 455 trillion Lulu ȴs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 135,971 Lulu ȴs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, a government program is underway to revitalize Bunkaiia's beaches, refugees from other nations are flocking to Bunkaiia's border, and children aren't allowed to chew their pencils until they get home from school. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bunkaiia's national animal is the Korbuna Crocodilians, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mazdakite Zoroastrianism.

Bunkaiia is ranked 10,599th in the world and 34th in Forest for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 7,364.47 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
