The United Provinces of Gamhound is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Supreme Executor Jason Parenon with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, soft-spoken computers, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 24.265 billion Gamhoundish are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Environment are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scorchburg. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Gamhoundish economy, worth a remarkable 6,919 trillion Gams 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 Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 285,173 Gams, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police escort anti-abortion activists to free speech cages if they try to express their views, military units are often seen arguing over which one is truly favored by the gods, professionals are ready to retire by the time they receive permission to use their credentials, and Catherine Gratwick's campaign support is considered seminal. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gamhound's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Eternal Conflagration.

Gamhound is ranked 260,071st in the world and 193rd in Yggdrasil for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -23.75 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
