The Tri-Planetary Coalition of Glurponia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Federal Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, state-planned economy, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 9.449 billion Glurpons hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of North Mars. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Glurpone economy, worth a remarkable 2,155 trillion standardized units 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 228,138 standardized units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Posters on 'Glurpone Values' advise against being proud of Glurponia, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls. Crime is totally unknown. Glurponia's national animal is the monster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Homestuck.

Glurponia is ranked 1,792nd in the world and 183rd in The North Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 478.38 Bank.
