The Illegitimate government of Gjorka is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by existential dread with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.476 billion Gjorkans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. The average income tax rate is 42.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Gjorkan economy, worth a remarkable 1,308 trillion Corruptions a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 104,870 Corruptions, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The police have been known to wiretap confessional boxes, pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit, a cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, and the morbidly obese often sell stock options on their own corpses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gjorka's national animal is the Quebecshirite, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lalo Salamancaism.

Gjorka is ranked 166,807th in the world and 399th in The League for Most Extreme, scoring 17.01 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
