The Democratic Republic of Gandoor is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Park Sang-Hee with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 32.256 billion Gandoorese hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gandoor City. The average income tax rate is 8.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gandoorese economy, worth a remarkable 8,993 trillion gdyns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 278,826 gdyns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new cheese tax is colloquially known as "wheel welfare", libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, a milk bath costs more than bathing in money, and sex changes are routinely performed at Gandoor's hospitals. Crime is totally unknown. Gandoor's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gandoor is ranked 2,898th in the world and 1st in Osakaland for Longest Average Lifespans, with 93.99 years.
