The Republic of Empire of Gora is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Great Garzo with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, national health service, and frequent executions. The compassionate, devout population of 6.31 billion Gorans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goventry. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Goran economy, worth 737 trillion Golaps a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 116,834 Golaps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Candidates make campaign speeches at the funerals of former rivals, the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, the nation threatens sanctions on islands only visible at low tide, and viewers get headaches from trying to read the screen full of small print warnings that precede most TV shows. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Empire of Gora's national animal is the Great Goran Sidneck Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Christianity.

Empire of Gora is ranked 229,450th in the world and 129th in The Hole To Hide In for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 19.02 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
