The United Regions of Glurponia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by John Doe II Junior with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.006 billion Glurpons hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gleamingville. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Glurpone economy, worth 665 trillion kilojoules a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 132,921 kilojoules, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, and TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Glurponia's national animal is the tarrasque, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Homestuck.

Glurponia is ranked 144,732nd in the world and 7,044th in The North Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 46.39 Workforce Participation Rate.
